Academic Integrity Week

October 18 - 22, 2021

This initiative is intended to provide an opportunity for learning and discussing various critical aspects of Academic Integrity, including Contract Cheating, assessment design, and adopting a values-based approach to Academic Integrity.

Please join us for the sessions below:


Values based approach to Academic Integrity

Oct. 18, 2021 | 2:30pm - 3:30pm

Approaches to academic honesty are often punitive, rather than values-based, and this session will discuss what is needed to make a culture shift towards values and away from the often adversarial relationship that gets created when focusing only on punishment.

Speaker: Samantha Cutrara, Curriculum Specialist in Vice-Provost Office


Contract Cheating

Oct. 20, 2021 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm

In light of the International Day of Action Against Contract Cheating, Associate Dean, Teaching and Learning, Anita Lam will speak about contract cheating to foster an understanding of the issue amongst faculty and staff.

Speaker: Anita Lam, Associate Dean, Teaching & Learning, LA&PS


Designing Assessment with Academic Integrity in mind

Oct. 21, 2021 | 3:00pm - 4:00pm

The session will focus on how assessments can be designed and approached in ways that encourage academic honesty.

Speakers: Mary Chaktsiris, Associate Director, Program Evaluation & Pedagogical Design and Sarah Debbek, Instructional Designer
