When we think of academic integrity, we often think of it as an issue that primarily concerns students. But educators have a BIG role to play in preserving academic integrity.
In this session, we’ll share the nuances of ensuring and advancing academic integrity in education. What are the different types of academic integrity violations? What policies, processes, and communications need to be in place to support and promote academic integrity proactively? How do you discipline students who engage in violations? What are your processes to train faculty, staff, and students on this topic? How do you build a culture of accountability and trust that serves student success overall? We will tackle all these questions and more in this session.
