Event Details

Highly recommended for: anyone interested in learning more about learning, teaching, assessment & feedback, Academic Integrity.

Engaging with Academic Integrity

Join Dr Thomas Lancaster to find out more about current threats to academic integrity in our universities, along with opportunities to make changes to our educational practices, assessment processes and how we engage with students as our partners. In this interactive webinar, Thomas will explore the principles of academic integrity, consider why students cheat and how to help them to avoid this temptation. Thomas will also explore some of the latest issues in the academic integrity field, including contract cheating and artificial intelligence based writing solutions, both of which are of concern as they mean that students miss out on the opportunity to learn. Contributions to the discussion from attendees will be welcome and time will be available for questions and idea sharing.
