Managing Academic Integrity for You and Your Students
When: Monday, February 24, 1:00 p.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Location: Searle Center Library
Students are tempted to resort to academic dishonesty far too often, creating one of the most difficult and time-consuming situations that all teachers will have to address. How can we lessen that temptation? When do our own academic integrity guidelines require us to address our students' dishonesty? What counts as academic dishonesty anyway? This workshop will create a dialogue that helps you answer these questions in terms of your own instruction and TAing. We will address issues of plagiarism, data fabrication, cheating on papers and exams, and other ways students may attempt to gain unfair advantage over others; for each of these, we will focus on appropriate mediation and effective prevention.
