Improving University Teachers’ Professional Ethics in Teaching Practice in China


Teacher's professional ethics, short for teacher ethics, refers to the relatively stable moral concepts, moral qualities and codes of conduct formed by teachers in the process of educational work. From this definition, we can know that teacher's professional ethics is an excellent quality of internalizing morality through teaching practice. Therefore, this kind of quality is not born and achieved overnight. In order to study how to improve teacher’s professional ethics in the practice of education and teaching, this essay uses the methods of questionnaire and statistics to conduct targeted random questionnaire survey on several teachers, students and their parents in two local universities in Hebei Province of China, and makes statistical analysis on the results of the questionnaire. It is found that some teachers have some problems in their professional ethics in teaching practice, especially in classroom teaching. The gap between teachers’ teaching ability, attitude, work engagement and expectations for them is obvious. Therefore, in view of the existing problems, colleges and universities should establish a construction system of teachers' ethics that is in line with the school situation, teachers themselves should learn the theoretical knowledge of teachers' professional ethics, and gradually improve their professional ethics in combination with teaching practice.
