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
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
