Tools and Techniques for Promoting Academic Integrity
Make honesty your policy
It’s not as simple as catching someone glancing at a neighbor’s test, and there’s more to it than peeking at formulas written on wrists.
If only that were all you had to worry about.
Of course, cheating in higher education—like nearly all aspects of higher education—is more complex and nuanced than that.
Moreover, what constitutes cheating varies from discipline to discipline and even from school to school. That is a big part of why academic integrity is such a tricky issue.
Yes, the immediate availability of research, scholarship, and other published information makes it easy for students to discover, mimic, or even outright plagiarize ideas and work.
However, there is far more to the issue of academic integrity than making sure that students don’t steal materials from the Internet.
That is why you need Tools and Techniques for Promoting Academic Integrity.
This Magna Online Seminar illuminates the shades of gray inherent in academic integrity and then imparts realistic strategies for creating and establishing standards appropriate for your institution.
