AbstractDiscusses issues of impropriety and misconduct in the teaching role at the postsecondary level. The authors examine norms of teaching behavior, and how transgressions are detected and addressed. The authors explore how teaching norms are informally defined and observed, and argue for a formal code of ethics to be developed for undergraduate teaching.
