A student perspective of academic integrity
Keywords:academic integrity, Canada, higher education
My presentation will be about my perspectives of academic integrity as it is presented at my university, and the challenges I believe it may pose to students. Beginning with my previous experiences as a student outside of Canada, then as a foreign student in Canada, and my current involvement with academic integrity, including the lessons I learnt from a recent academic integrity research project, I will share ways in which I believe post-secondary institutions, faculty and resource staff may improve students’ experiences and understanding of academic integrity as separate and different from misconduct. I will also share suggestions for involving students in the conversation around academic integrity.
