Promoting Academic Integrity in the Classroom
There are many factors that influence academic dishonesty: sloppy study habits, procrastination, stress, poor time management and lack of self-confidence to name a few. Many students are afraid to approach the instructor when academic workload, writer's block or other non-academic circumstances are causing significant pressure.
PREVENTION IS THE KEY. Faculty and students come from a variety of backgrounds and cultures, giving rise to different expectations of moral and ethical behavior. Well-defined and effectively communicated standards in the classroom reduce uncertainty and clarify expectations.
Student Conduct and Community Standards staff can provide professional development for faculty and teaching assistants on steps to take to promote academic integrity in the classroom, how to confront students who are suspected of academic dishonesty, and the process by which the University holds students accountable for such violations.
Presentations will be tailored to meet your needs and time limitations.
