Slow & Steady: Establishing an Institutional Culture of Academic Integrity

Next Monday we’re continuing with the webinar series on AcademicIntegrity after a long pause due to the industrial strike action. Led by Lynn Cliplef, Mitchell Hengen, Caitlin Munn and Josh Seeland, the talk will offer an engaging insight into working examples of how to build a culture of Academic Integrity at your institution. This is taking place on Monday 13th March 3-4pm, read the abstract below:

“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.”

Learning outcomes:

· Summarize theories and frameworks related to education on academic integrity

· Describe strategies which reduce avenues for academic misconduct, including mathematics assignments specifically

· Summarize process for identifying indicators of potential academic misconduct

· Describe processes to improve the administration of policy related to academic integrity and academic misconduct
