Should Falculty Work Outside Acadamic World

529 words - 3 pages

The speaker asserts that all faculties in college and university should spend time working outside the academic world in professions relevant to the courses they teach in order to improve the quality of instruction. While the cases this issue involved are various and complex, to make a conclusion without full analysis is superficial and arbitrary.

Admittedly, non-academic working experiences may enhance quality of instruction in various ways for certain disciplines which are more practical such as medicine and law. Experience and knowledge lead to success, which said by one of the most famous economist in the world.

After all, students have to secure a good job after school, if they only focus on theories indoctrinated through books, they may suffer a lot after graduate. From this point of view, there is no denying that professors with professional experiences may earn more respect from their students who are interested in their insights in the real world.

However, as the energy of a person is limited, working outside will inevitably make a teacher not concentrate on preparing and teaching courses. The quality of instruction will hardly be satisfactory if teachers yawn from time to time and present lectures full of mistakes to students in class. For example, some famous professors have so many seminars to attend and lectures to address, not in class but on social occasions, that their students can merely see them in campus. In situations like this, if the busy professors are still required to work outside, you can imagine the quality of education and the feelings of their students.

Moreover, though the pragmatic part of learning is indispensible, it is undeniable that teacher in some faculty have nowhere to work outside the academic world. Some disciplines such as theoretical physics need more devotion in laboratory to formulating models and deduction rather than working experience outside. Meanwhile, there are also some disciplines are incapable of being applied to realistic professions by nature. Philosophy, for example, as a domain that distinguishes from other subjects, is not applicable to this case. The same is true with Logics, an extremely abstract and theoretical discipline which requires thinking and reexamine. Courses like these are designed to survive and thrive inside of human thought and of course, inside studies. Therefore, it is only a waste of time for the teachers in these kinds of subjects to work outside, since the subjects can develop themselves without crossing social experience.
