You should be willing to work with me as long as I'm willing to work with you.
If I bother to come up to you & ask for help, you should be willing to help your customer up to the point where you aren't legally allowed to or at which point the universities simple metaphor.
The quick exercise I’ve developed encourages students to move beyond simplistic notions.
For teaching, I ask students to complete the following: After they work individually I have students pair up, compare notes, and develop even better metaphor.s We then discuss the similarities and differences among various relationships.
Last month I wrote a post called, “When Students Request Excused Absences for Work-Related Issues.” This was a follow-up to my “Open Letter to College Freshmen,” in which I made the point that college is students’ first professional position, and that the professor’s role is similar to that of an employer.
I made the point that if students want to advance in their careers they need to learn the “job” of "college student," which means showing up for work (class), learning what’s expected, taking initiative, etc.
Additionally, SB 7 provides that a person who is a member of the Teacher Retirement System and is convicted of certain felonies that involve sexual abuse of a student or minor will be ineligible to receive a service retirement annuity from the retirement system.
I think my boss-employee metaphor works reasonably well to help freshmen understand some of the differences between high school and college.Teachers are perceived as role models in the community, and the laws and regulations that mandate appropriate standards of conduct reflect that expectation.Failure to comply with these standards can lead to adverse employment action, certification sanctions and criminal consequences.Students often have choice about where they spend their (or their parents’ or the bank’s) educational dollars.As my commentator pointed out, students have a right to expect professors to provide appropriate help.
