Relation between Teachers' Demographic and Professional Profile and Their Attitude towards Ethical Obligations of Teaching Profession
Goswami, I; Ranjith, L.
Journal on Educational Psychology, v4 n1 p37-44 May-Jul 2010
Teachers in higher education are not contrastingly different from the primary and secondary school teachers in terms of their ethical obligations to their stakeholders. However in higher education teachers' professionalism and their attitude towards ethical obligations are believed to be more important for ensuring quality education services. The present study explored similar attitude and its relationship with teachers' demographic and professional profile. The investigation was done through a questionnaire survey involving 137 teachers of one selected academy of higher education in Tamil Nadu. The findings do not provide strong evidence that respondents have desirable commitment to their professional obligations. Also it has been revealed that while teachers' demographic profile has no impact on their attitude but their professional profile has partial impact.
