Managing Academic Integrity: Perspectives from Engineering

Academic misconduct is as old as the hills. While it is discouraging to see this behaviour, we really should not be too surprised when we discover cases in our classrooms. A lot of research has explored why students cheat, and what instructors can do to reduce instances of misconduct. There has been little discussion, however, on how schools manage academic integrity within their programs and institutions. This webinar will cover academic integrity and misconduct from the lens of an administrator. Institutions have policies and procedures in place to investigate allegations of misconduct, and they also have initiatives to promote integrity among students. Results from a recent survey of engineering schools and engineering regulators will be reviewed, highlighting best practices and areas for improvement.
