Event Description

This event is part of the 2022 Celebrate Learning Week.

Through a collaboration between the Teaching and Curriculum Development Centre (TCDC), the Centre for Intercultural Engagement (CIE) and the Academic Integrity and Student Conduct Office, an open access toolkit for educators called “Encouraging Academic Integrity Through a Preventative Framework” was created. ​

This toolkit was developed to provide instructors with resources to reframe the conversations around what academic integrity and the expression of integrity means when viewed through the lens of identity and the intersections of culture, gender identity and ethnicity. We provide a model we call the Complexity Quadrant to examine the complexity in expression and perception of academic integrity. With this model in mind, we discuss strategies for fostering integrity and preventing contraventions of academic integrity standards through the use of Universal Design for Learning and intentional assessment design. ​

We propose to present the sections of the toolkit, focusing on the complexity quadrant, using an interactive discussion approach. By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:​

  1. Use the complexity quadrant to reframe conversations around academic integrity​
  2. Describe Universal Design for Learning and how this framework can be used to promote academic integrity​
  3. Consider assessment design practices that encourage academic integrity​

The e-book is available for free through BC Campus Pressbooks Open Education Resources​.
