This year’s Celebrate Learning Week includes two academic integrity related events.
May 11, 2022 | 9:30 – 11:00 am | Online
Through a collaboration between the Teaching and Curriculum Development Centre (TCDC) [Langara College], the Centre for Intercultural Engagement (CIE) [Langara College] and the Academic Integrity and Student Conduct Office [Langara College], an open access toolkit for educators called “Encouraging Academic Integrity Through a Preventative Framework” was created.
This toolkit was developed to provide instructors with resources to reframe the conversations around what academic integrity and the expression of integrity means when viewed through the lens of identity and the intersections of culture, gender identity and ethnicity. We provide a model we call the Complexity Quadrant to examine the complexity in expression and perception of academic integrity. With this model in mind, we discuss strategies for fostering integrity and preventing contraventions of academic integrity standards through the use of Universal Design for Learning and intentional assessment design.

Since the shift to online teaching and learning, academic integrity (or dishonesty) has been on top of mind for many instructors, administrators, and students. Much has been learned during the past two years uncovering the deep complexities about this topic including issues around assessment methods, stress and wellbeing pressures, proctoring technologies, tutoring companies in an unregulated market, among others.
This panel discussion will briefly share with the audience what has been done at UBC Okanagan so far, what we have learned, and where we are headed in the short-term. The audience is encouraged to engage in the follow-up conversation with the panelists towards finding more inclusive and accessible strategies towards building a stronger culture of academic integrity.
