Responsibilities of the Teacher, Professional Boundaries and the Learning Cycle
Responsibilities of the Teacher
The responsibilities of the Teacher will include:
Completing attendance records
Maintaining records of student progress eg: interview, tutorials, assessments etc •
Having a duty of care for your students
Inducting students to the organisation and course
Carrying out one-to-one tutorials and reviews with students •
Following professional values and ethics
Acting and speaking appropriately
Standardising your practice with others
Preparing delivery material and marking work
Attending promotional events and exhibitions
Referring students to other people or agencies when necessary
You will have professional boundaries within which to work and it is important not to overstep these. You would need to find out what these are at your place of work.
It is about knowing where your role as a Tutor stops. Eg: You might feel it sensible to make a telephone call to a student, who has been absent, but making regular calls would be inappropriate.
It may be more appropriate to request assistance from others to ensure that an equal and positive learning experience is available for all.
Always ensure you maintain confidentiality and follow any organisational requirements.
