"OMG! You Said What in Class? TMI!" College Student and Professor Perceptions of Professional Etiquette Violations
Island, Heide D.
Universal Journal of Educational Research, v4 n10 p2477-2482 2016
This study sampled undergraduate students and faculty from a small, Pacific Northwest, Liberal Arts University using an online survey of attitudes and behavior regarding professional etiquette in the classroom. It was anticipated that students and faculty would report significant differences in their perceptions of what constitute professional behavior violations, potentially contributing to problems with classroom rapport, communication, and ultimately poor student preparation for employment. However, the results suggest that students and professors' perceptions of socially civil behavior in the classroom are more congruent than disparate. What differs is likely the definitions of what behaviors are formal and acceptable across contexts than simply in the classroom or a professional context.
