The COVID-19 pandemic and the rapid pivot to online learning exacerbated the academic misconduct challenges observed in Canadian postsecondary education before the pandemic, but it also highlighted the importance of building cultures of integrity. How do we as educators and administrators promote academic integrity to our students and stress the importance of good decision-making when completing academic work?
In this session, attendees will learn more about how to begin to build cultures of academic integrity using teaching and learning strategies. Examples of successful approaches implemented by individual educators, university communities, and provincial networks across Canada will be shared.
