What People are saying about this

Penny Booth Page
A MUST-READ for all who teach and supervise pharmacy students. Whether teaching to large classes, small groups, experiential learning, or graduate students, this book offers insight into integrating proper student behavior, pre-professional expectations, and student/faculty interactions. . . . The chapters on promoting civility from the perspective of the new faculty member and on boundary violations in student/faculty relationships are especially valuable, as are the case studies and scenarios depicting common problems that may result in uncivil interactions and possible solutions.
Gerald E. Schumacher, PharmD, PhD, Professor of Pharmacy, Northeastern University
David E. Smith
WILL APPEAL TO FACULTY interested in creating learning environments that encourage not only polite behavior but patient-oriented professional roles and responsibilities. . . . Explores causes of and cures for incivility in this new academic environment. Though the authors do provide strategies for increasing civility in large classrooms, small groups, experiential programs, and graduate education, the book's eight essays are not merely lists of schoolmarm-ish techniques for crowd control. They explore deeper moral issues, demonstrating that the promotion of educational civility involves the practice, modeling, and inculcation of professional responsibilities.
Thomas D. Zlatic, PhD, Professor of English and Director of the Norton Writing Center, St. Louis College of Pharmacy
