This is a book about the ethics of teaching in the context of higher education. While many books focus on the broader socially ethical topics of widening participation and promoting equal opportunities, this unique book concentrates specifically on the lecturer's professional responsibilities. It covers the real-life, messy, everyday moral dilemmas that confront university teachers when dealing with students and colleagues - whether arising from facilitated discussion in the classroom, deciding whether it is fair to extend a deadline, investigating suspected plagiarism or dealing with complaints. Bruce Macfarlane analyses the pros and cons of prescriptive professional codes of practice employed by many universities and proposes the active development of professional virtues over bureaucratic recommendations. The material is presented in a scholarly, yet accessible style, and case examples are used throughout to encourage a practical, reflective approach. Teaching With Integrity seeks to bridge the pedagogic gap currently separating the debate about teaching and learning in higher education from the broader social and ethical environment in which it takes place.

There is increased emphasis internationally on ethically sound research, and on good training for research supervisors. Researching with Integrity aims to identify what and how research can be undertaken ethically and with ‘virtue’ from initial conception of ideas through to dissemination. It outlines the context in which academics engage in research, considering the impact of discipline and institutional culture, the influence of government audit of research ‘quality’, the role of government and quangos, professional organisations and business sponsors, and examines the effects of the increasing power and influence of funding bodies, university ethics committees and codes of practice. Based on the notion of ‘virtue’ ethics, this book proposes an alternative approach to research, which focuses not only on ethical rules and protocol to avoid unethical research, but encourages academic, professional and character development and allows for the exercise of personal judgement. Themes considered include: Increased competitiveness between academics and concentration of funding in fewer universities Increasingly bureaucratic approval of processes focused on the treatment of human and animals in research Meeting the expectations of research sponsors ‘Taboo’ research topics and methods Exposing findings to the scrutiny of peers, taking credit for the work of others and self-citation Bullying of junior researchers and plagiarism Power and influence of institutional, discipline-based and professional organisations Illustrated throughout with short narratives detailing ethical issues and dilemmas from international academic researchers representing different disciplines, research cultures and national contexts, this books proposes a an alternative approach to research which provides all research professionals with the intellectual tools they need to cope with complex research.

Defining integrity as "the combination of attributes and actions that makes people and organizations coherent, consistent, and potentially ethical," the editor and contributing authors illustrate how student affairs administrators can understand and implement integrity in their institutions. Early chapters explore the organizational integrity of student affairs. Transactional and transformational leadership perspectives are discussed in the second section. Other contributing authors tie education to integrity. In their chapter, Dennis Roberts and Trudy Banta engage in a dialogue about the way student development theory should guide practice, and how its assessment is essential to maintain the integrity of our practice. Sue Saunders and Jennifer Lease Butts consider how we should teach integrity to graduate students and new professionals. Final chapters explore challenges to integrity ranging from those in the normal work routines, such as resident hall directors confronting late night parties or interoffice dynamics, to those faced in extraordinary circumstances such as the ones faced in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. Readers of this volume will learn how integrity affects the trustworthiness of their organizations and operations. They will have the opportunity to read about the highest goals and the best practices of leadership, and gain ideas about some practical strategies that can help them deal with challenges to organizational and individual integrity. This is the 135th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Student Services, An indispensable resource for vice presidents of student affairs, deans of students, student counselors, and other student services professionals, New Directions for Student Services offers guidelines and programs for aiding students in their total development: emotional, social, physical, and intellectual.

This new book presents both research (qualitative, quantitative, and mixed-design) and conceptual chapters about the ethical factors to be considered in teaching, administration, and professional practice in higher education settings. The book includes recent research-based ideas in the field of higher education. Topics include cultural competencies for higher education faculty, professionals, and administrators, such as use of language in communicating concepts to students for whom English is not a first language, avoiding imposition of bias, encouraging exposition of perspective, and ethical practices for professionals working with the diverse environments and populations in higher education settings. This work is particularly important since becoming informed on the latest approaches and ideologies is an essential component of both professional preparation and continuing professional development of faculty, professionals, and administrators in higher education. Currently, education practitioners struggle with finding time for professional development and ways to inform themselves of the latest research. This volume will help education practitioners keep abreast of the most important recent research. As college student populations and environments continually change, so must the practices of the professionals who work with them. This volume highlights some of the most recent practices and perspectives in ethics and cultural competence for all college and university personnel. This volume is unique and valuable because other books have addressed culturally competent ethical practices for discrete professions within higher education, no single work has a collection of writings about ethical and culturally competent practices for a variety of the professions in higher education.

What does professional responsibility entail in an increasingly insecure, unpredictable and de-regulated world? This is the core question addressed in this text. The point of departure for the various contributions is that professional responsibility is a way of being in the world that includes a particular mandate – to behave in a manner consistent with moral and societal obligations as a professional. Increasingly, however, there is a lack of consensus as to what such mandates imply, and even more dissensus as to what appropriate exercise of responsibility entails. One of the distinctive features of this book is the manner in which it combines normative and empirical dimensions. It moves beyond dualistic perspectives to create a more inclusive conversation on professional responsibility. In the face of increasing complexity of professional work, professional responsibility remains open to further development. The book signals direction for the development of professional responsibility, and while seeking to give direction to ongoing deliberations avoids the pitfalls of performativity. The chapters are grounded in a variety of disciplinary perspectives and traverse various professional boundaries in a self-reflexive manner to create more inclusive, transformative and generative narratives on professional responsibility. This is achieved by: Focusing on normative dimensions of professional work and combining these with a focus on empirical aspects of professional practice in a variety of setting, and Recognising the inevitable tensions between personal trust and responsibility, and largely depersonalised policies and strategies of quality control when normative and empirical aspects of professional responsibility are situated within their policy environments. The concluding narrative moves beyond deconstruction, complexity and critique of these considerations to a construction of new imagined horizons of professional responsibility from theoretical, conceptual and practical perspectives. This text sets out to transform professional responsibility through a re-configuration of its constituent elements in imaginative and creative ways and by indicating the ‘real world’ import of re-charting the field.
