New Challenges to Academic Integrity
As the new term approaches, schools and universities are faced with the difficult task of adapting high-quality, face-to-face instruction and assessment for online and hybrid learning environments. This transition is made all the more complicated with the added layer of keeping academic integrity at the core of student learning. Worryingly recent research (Wiley, 2020) and anecdotal evidence suggests that student misconduct has increased during the hasty shift to online learning.
As more and more courses move to blended or fully remote learning how do we address these threats to academic integrity? Have you seen increasing instances of misconduct at your school, and what are the most common breaches of integrity you are encountering?
