The Importance of Respect in Teaching and Learning: Perspectives of Final Year Pre-service Teachers in A Regional University in Ireland
The purpose of this research was to examine pre-service teachers (PSTs’) perceptions of respect in educative relationships. This study also investigated the factors that guided the pre-service teachers’ perceptions. The authors conclude that the respect for the role of a teacher by their pupils is bound not solely in their subject knowledge, but can be diminished in their eyes through a perceived humiliation or can be enhanced by a willingness for the teacher to convey ‘interpersonal respect’, by attempting to relate to them. Additionally, the participants stated that balancing ‘interpersonal respect’ and ‘respect in the role of the teacher’ helped them to feel more confident in their teaching abilities and to relate to their pupils.
