Slow & Steady: Establishing an Institutional Culture of Academic Integrity

Speakers: Lynn Cliplef, Mitchell Hengen, Caitlin Munn, Josh Seeland
Monday 13 March 15:00 – 16:00 GMT

Establishing an institutional culture of academic integrity can be an uphill battle spanning many years. While this can be off-putting for those who may feel that their individual roles in this context are futile, sustained collaborative efforts at the grassroots level and key partnerships (Bertram Gallant, 2011) can plant the seeds for a holistic change.

Join the multidisciplinary Learning Commons team for an interactive session in which academic integrity is anchored in teaching and learning (Bertram Gallant, 2016). Participants will leave this session with clear, research and evidence-based examples of opportunities for building a culture of academic integrity in their own institution.

Contract Cheating: The Student Perspective, Deborah Horrocks

Speaker: Deborah Horrocks, Turnitin
Date to be rescheduled due to industrial action on 15 March 

Deborah will share insights on the scale of contract cheating in the UK, including the results of a recent student survey by Turnitin which highlights just how many students have knowledge of, or have been approached by, essay mill businesses and how students would like more support in dealing with these clandestine approaches from the institution.


We look forward to seeing you there!
