Public Lecture | Teacher Professional Ethics



The Faculty of Social Sciences and Education is hosting a Public Lecture on “Teacher Professional Ethics” with Dr. Kuok Sio Lai, on the 15th of March.


It is the patronising mission of professional teachers to “preach and teach”. Teachers must have the professional ethics of “learning to be a teacher and performing well as a model for the youngsters”.

The content of the public lecture explicates the implication of teachers’ professional ethics from the four aspects: practical teaching, communicating with students, working with colleagues, personal development and certified appearance. As long as they have strict requirements on themselves in these four aspects and can continuously improve, every teacher can become an “exceptional teacher”.
