Faculty Development Workshops and Programs
The change to remote learning presents both challenges to authentic learning and opportunities to help our students to learn with integrity. In these drop-in workshops, we will discuss two perspectives on academic integrity in the remote context. These sessions will be interactive, with plenty of time for questions and discussion.
Technology and Integrity: Threats, Opportunities, and Fool’s Gold (7/29, 2pm) – Recording link available here
On Wednesday July 29th at 2pm, the topic will be Technology and Integrity: Threats, Opportunities, and Fool’s Gold. In this session, we’ll dive into the “arms race” model of academic misconduct and integrity technology. We will consider some of the online resources that our students have access to (e.g. Chegg, CourseHero, Google translate, Quillbot) the technological options available to us as faculty to catch and deter academic misconduct (Turnitin, lockdown browsers, proctoring systems), and the consequences of using them. Lastly, we will look to Canvas to find some simple tools that can improve security of exams and assignments.
Pedagogical Approaches to Academic Integrity (8/5, 2pm)
Recording link available here
On Wednesday, August 5th at 2pm, the topic will be Pedagogical Approaches to Academic Integrity. In this session, we will consider how course and assessment design can improve both learning outcomes and academic integrity. Topics include frequent low stakes testing, student choice assignments, scaffolding, and the importance of communicating your values and expectations. This workshop will draw on content from the Refocus and Compelling Courses workshops and connect them to research on promoting academic integrity.
