Teaching & Learning Centre
The Teaching & Learning Centre will be offering a course for Faculty: Promoting a Culture of Academic Integrity. This is a five session course starting on November 21st, 2018. Registration is now open on PD Tracking.
Promoting a Culture of Academic Integrity
Why do students cheat? Academic integrity offences have been attributed to a student’s lack of moral compass, cultural differences, stress-related competition, and an expectation for attaining high grades. Infractions of academic integrity can occur because of their learning environments and this course will focus on the strategies that you can use to make cheating/plagiarism less worthwhile to the student as well as improve student learning. This course will also discuss creating classroom environments that support ethical choices, activities that promote awareness of what is and isn’t an academic integrity offence, and assignments designed to reduce academic integrity offences.
This course runs for 5 sessions on Wednesdays, 1:30 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. at Newnham Campus on the following dates:
- November 21
- November 28
- January 9
- January 30
- February 13
