Community of Practice on Academic Integrity
The Community of Practice (CoP) on Academic Integrity is working toward uniformity across campus on issues dealing with academic integrity. Our group is concerned with student and faculty experiences with various types of academic misconduct and the approach that is taken when dealing with these types of issues. This CoP wants a campus community that takes academic integrity seriously and allows our students to have pride and ownership of their coursework. Academic integrity is a part of the IUPUI culture. What can we do to improve our campus?
We have been focusing on collecting information about how academic misconduct is handled on our campus, other IU campuses, and other universities. We have also developed a handbook of guidelines for both students and faculty with easy-to-reference information on the IU Code of Conduct. We are currently seeking opportunities with faculty to have conversations about how academic misconduct works at IUPUI. This CoP is mainly focusing on how faculty can be supported and encouraged with matters dealing with academic misconduct.
The goals of our CoP include:
- Hosting a workshop in the fall on best practices in avoiding incidences of academic misconduct
- Completing Canvas online modules on "What is Academic Integrity" for students
- Developing online modules for course instructors and teaching assistants
- Disseminating our work by writing an article in a peer-reviewed journal and presenting our work at a national conference
Our CoP will continue to work on online modules for students to participate in fall 2017 in their first-year seminar course and to plan a workshop for fall 2017 on best practices in avoiding academic misconduct in your classroom.
