What does Academic Integrity mean to you? Have you had any issues with your
students and/or colleagues such as plagiarism, cheating, and other "unfair
sharing"? How does culture affect our understanding of academic integrity?
This session examines effective strategies to promote academic integrity by
incorporating proactive, interculturally sensible measures. In this
interactive session, we will analyze authentic cases in order to explore the
complexity of different academic values and to manage potential problems.
