Throughout the week, there will be a focus on topics for students and instructors, including:

  • Deterring and detecting plagiarism and inappropriate collaboration
  • Artificial Intelligence and chatbots like ChatGPT – implications for academic integrity and pedagogy reform
  • Research anxiety and student well-being
  • Reporting procedures and disciplinary actions for integrity violations
  • Fostering a culture of integrity, excellence, and accountability through assignments and classroom policies
