At the Gwenna Moss Centre for Teaching Effectiveness, when faculty and instructors ask us about academic integrity, we will inevitably steer the conversation to three main values:
- the value of being very explicit with students about the rules you expect them to follow
- the value of understanding the rules of your home department or college as well as the university policy on academic misconduct,
- the value of designing assessment for authentic learning.
Here’s a video that demonstrates this tendency quite nicely, if I do say so myself:
And, for further evidence of our redirect, coming up on Monday, October 6 1:30 – 2:15 in the GMCTE Classroom, as part of Academic Integrity Awareness Week, there will be a short session on assessment practices by Carolyn Hoessler and Barb Schindelka titled “Reduce Uncertainty, Increase Integrity: How to create relevant and effective assessments.” Register for this practical session at http://www.usask.ca/gmcte/events.
