Academic Integritiy

Academic integrity as a commitment to five fundamental values: honesty, trust, fairness, respect, and responsibility in any activity related to academic work and avoiding any kind of cheating or dishonest action (International Center for Academic Integrity, 2014, p.16).

As an educator, promoting academic integrity and reducing the potential for academic dishonesty begins with:

  • Establishing a culture of honesty and building connections with learners.
  • Developing an academic integrity vocabulary in your class.
  • Being clear about what is and what is not allowed to reduce uncertainty, scaffold assignments and have assignments that show their work and are relevant to students.
  • Responding and addressing academic dishonesty where it does occur.
  • Linking values to professional ethics and professional codes.
