Teaching with Integrity: Methods and Strategies for Fostering Academic Integrity in Your Classroom or Laboratory

January 17 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

This event is part of the TA Institute, taking place from January 16–19, 2023.

Eligibility: The TA Institute is open to all undergraduate TAs, graduate students who are interested in teaching, and all graduate student TAs. This session is not open to general undergraduate students, post-doctoral fellows, staff, or faculty.

This two-hour interactive workshop will introduce graduate students to current concepts in academic integrity. We will examine misconceptions (both TAs/instructors’ and students’) about who commits academic misconduct, how, and why. We will introduce a framework for preventing academic misconduct that focuses on helping students understand the importance of acting with integrity and designing curriculum elements that encourage learners to do so. Participants will then put these methods and strategies into practice by designing materials they can use in their own teaching contexts.
