Academic Integrity IconAcademic integrity refers to the values of maintaining honesty and fairness in the learning environment. Both instructor and student have responsibilities to maintain academic integrity. Students must demonstrate their knowledge and skills, while integrating the work and ideas of others in appropriate ways. Instructors must model the behavior they expect, while providing clear instructions in a supportive learning environment. Preparing students to demonstrate academic integrity begins on day one of each course. The Academic Integrity tutorial integrated in your LEARN site will spark the discussion on what academic integrity means in your course. The tutorial uses positive language that encourages students to build their reputation in the classroom to prepare for their future careers.

Instructors can use the Academic Integrity tutorial in a number of ways. The complete tutorial can be assigned as an asynchronous independent learning activity, or the instructor can walk students through content in a synchronous classroom setting and lead discussion. To boost the effectiveness, instructors are recommended to review the content of the tutorial and use a similar vocabulary when discussing integrity in class and in industry. By starting the conversation early, you will open discussions that foster academic integrity in your course.
