How Can I Design Academic Integrity into My Online Programs?
Identify academic-integrity tools and techniques that can be adapted to fit the specific needs of your program or institution—and learn the three-stage process for putting these policies and procedures into practice.
Ensure Academic Integrity Across Your Campus
There have always been students who knew how to game the system, particularly in the virtual classroom.
A lack of consistent, campus-wide policies and procedures to promote honesty made it easy to be dishonest. Some departments didn't communicate to compare policies. In the most egregious cases, there were no policies at all.
Yet, by learning and applying some shrewd strategies, schools can cut down on dishonest behavior, especially in online courses. That's the idea behind How Can I Design Academic Integrity into My Online Programs?, the 20-Minute Mentor video from Magna Publications. You can buy your copy today.
In a candid and captivating presentation, Dr. Thomas Tobin of Northeastern Illinois University identifies academic-integrity tools and techniques that can be adapted to fit the specific needs of your program or institution.
The video reveals a three-stage process for putting these policies and procedures into practice—including the key wording from Dr. Tobin's own university president that made a measurable difference by setting high standards of academic integrity for students.
You'll get examples taken directly from schools that illustrate how a problem was uncovered, the solution chosen, the technique executed, and the result produced. You'll discover concrete steps for raising the academic integrity level at your campus—and give your students a valuable life lesson that will serve them in the workplace and beyond.
Even the brightest students need to be educated and reminded about the protocols of ethical academic behavior. This 20-minute presentation addresses this timely issue insightfully and realistically. Buy your video today.
