Are there any standards in higher education (any country) on when lecturers (any level, any field) have a private office or a shared office?
I know it's a good idea to provide 'consultation time' for students as one-on-one teaching helps the student in so many ways. However, in a shared office it seems that some of the benefits of one-on-one teaching disappear. For example, the student is less likely to be concerned about how they look in front of others if it's in a private office but if there are other teachers (perhaps with other students) then your student will have those issues again.
So, are there any standards about private vs shared offices for university lecturers?
