There will be two upcoming sessions focused on academic integrity at this year’s CTLT Spring Institute (May 30-June 3, 2022).
Let’s Talk About Academic Integrity: How, What, and When to Incorporate Academic Integrity into Your Course
May 30, 2022 | 1 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. | Zoom
Academic integrity is a commitment to upholding the UBC values of respect, integrity, and accountability in all academic endeavours. Academic integrity is important for activities that produce new knowledge through scholarly activities, including creative pursuits, writing, and speaking. It is also important for activities that have students demonstrate their learning through assessments and assignments. Instructors have a responsibility to work together with students and staff to promote a culture of academic integrity. This starts in the classroom, through explicitly teaching the standards of academic integrity in their discipline, and including information about academic integrity in course syllabi and coursework.
In this panel discussion, educators will share how they bring academic integrity discussion into their classes. Panelists will be from multiple disciplines and teach writing-focused and test-focused courses. Attendees will learn about UBC’s resources for teaching academic integrity and supporting students, including the new website https://academicintegrity.ubc.ca
This is a companion session to Academic Integrity & EDI: Rethinking Pedagogy and Practices for Inclusivity and Accessibility‚ though registration in both is not required.

During our time together, we’ll share relevant research findings and resources, unpack some of the dominant assumptions about academic misconduct, and consider ways that we, as educators, can adopt an accessible and inclusive pedagogy of integrity in our courses that supports all in doing their work with integrity. What are the ways that policies and pedagogy may increase barriers for students, or perpetuate damaging assumptions? How do we construct an EDI-informed framework for academic integrity in courses?
In this one-hour workshop, participants will reflect on disciplinary and classroom practices, respond to findings, share questions, and generate ideas to take back into their own teaching and departments to foster a culture of integrity (Bretag 2011) that is accessible and supportive.
This is a proposed as a companion session to Let’s Talk About Academic Integrity: How, What, and When to Incorporate Academic Integrity Into Your Course, though registration in both is not required.
