 Manifesto of Ethics:

 Here are some rules I strive to abide with while dealing with students:
  • § Clarity, give students a clear path to success with clear assignments and dates
  • § Transparency, grades are announced periodically and a student may discuss any grade
  • § Inspire Trust and make students keen to keep up this mutual trust
  • § Inspire professional positive attitude to students
  • § Treat students with respect as fellow professionals
  • § Always provides a second chance to makeup
  • § Inspire self confidence
  • § Encourage students to talk their minds and communicate as professionals
  • § Never humiliate a student even if wrong
  • § Inspire free thinking. Never impose views on a student, he always should adopt what he is able to defend
