The Portrait of "Good University Teacher" as Perceived by Tunisian Students
Belhaj, Amira Nouri; Ben Abderrahman, Mohamed Lamine
International Journal of Higher Education, v4 n3 p57-62 2015
Starting from the idea that "students are the best judges of the competence of their teachers" (Ramsden,1992), we propose in this work, which has comparative aim, to provide an update on the human and professional qualities of the university teacher as perceived by Tunisian students in response to the question: "what is a good university teacher like? What human qualities and professional skills should a university teacher have?". The reading of the survey results highlights: (i) the trend of Tunisian students to focus more on the human qualities of university teachers than their scientific work skills. (ii) The profile of the Tunisian student, i.e. a student who is "a victim of any kind of injustice "that deserves the indulgence of his teachers. (iii) a portrait that is rather alarming than reassuring of the university teacher.
