Theme
Academic Integrity: It Starts With Us

Overview

Welcome to your page for all things related to our 2016 Conference! We are excited for another thrilling time of collaboration, discussion, and networking with members and folks from around the world! The Annual International Conference is a cornerstone to ICAI and its mission in furthering and strengthening academic integrity in higher education with its grasp steadily extending to more than just academia. This is a time for academic professionals, affiliate organizations, and educational businesses to present, review, and discuss research, findings, and new undertakings within academic integrity and higher education. We are excited to have our 2016 Conference nestled amongst the mountains of New Mexico at the Hyatt Regency Tamaya Resort and Spa, just north of Albuquerque to provide a nice and tranquil setting which sits away from the hustle and bustle of the city but is still within a reasonable distance for those that want to explore Albuquerque. This year, our theme, "Academic Integrity: It Starts with Us" aims to delve into the power of students, teachers, administrators, and other professionals coming together to refine and foster academic integrity. We really want to look at the power of learning and the power of teamwork so that the integrity we strive to live out, show, share, and improve in academia can extend beyond the classroom walls or buildings of a University.

 

This is your main reference page for the conference, and we hope you will join us near the end of February! If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact Sam Goodman, Membership Director & Program Coordinator, at 864.656.1293 or sbgoodm@clemson.edu. Together, WE can make a difference!

Session 1: Friday, February 19, 8:30 AM - 10:00 AM

#1: " Ellen Goldberg, Head of Integrity Education, Integrity Action

Abstract: A definition of integrity will be presented with the basic elements of aligning Accountability, Competence and Ethics, without corruption. Additional concepts and activities for applying and building integrity through institutional or community-based monitoring and social accountability tools will be introduced with participants using some of the tools in the workshop. It is recommended that action learning be incorporated into the teaching to promote higher level thinking and skills development. Closing the Loop pulls together the outcome of the integrity education, integrity building and action learning. Global experiences from Afghanistan, Kenya, Nepal and Palestine will be shared.

 

#2: Jason Casares and Leila Faranesh, Indiana University

Abstract: As a cornerstone of academe, it is imperative that institutions are placing academic integrity at the forefront of our work with students. How are we managing the increasing number of academic integrity violations? What works? What does not work? Innovation and creativity does have a place with managing cheating, plagiarism, and other forms of dishonesty. It starts with stakeholder buy-in, building an educational response program grounded in student assessment and feedback, building a brand, developing tools to research our relative impact on students, and to craft prevention strategies that work. Over the past four years, intervention techniques have been unpacked that has successfully led to a reduction of second time offenses by 96.7%. At this pre-conference, we will discuss and share multiple tools, curriculum techniques, and proven strategies for our students. 

 

Session 2: Friday, February 19, 10:15 AM - 11:45 AM

#3: "Developing Campus Buy-in and Support for Academic Integrity Initiatives and Programs" James Orr, Virginia Polytechnic Institute

Abstract: Creating a culture of academic integrity and honesty requires an institutional wide effort. Campus units must take intentional steps to partner with each other in order to ensure effective policy and procedures, campus-wide programming that makes academic integrity part of the institutional culture, and a clear message that focuses on educating students on the importance of integrity in their daily lives. Faculty and administrators in both academic affairs and student affairs must be engaged in this process. This session will present strategies that educational institutions can use to create a culture in which academic integrity becomes part of what it means to be a member of the university community. The session will also provide specific strategies and examples that can be utilized to engage faculty, students, administrators, and academic departments in the promotion of academic integrity.

 

#4: "Beginning an Academic Integrity Campus Outreach Initiative" Michael Goodwin and Dorothy Kuykendal, Kennesaw State University

Abstract: This session will examine ways that administrators and faculty can increase awareness of academic integrity through audience-specific targeted efforts and campus-wide communication strategies, especially with regard to increasing faculty buy-in and utilization of disciplinary processes. Time will be allotted for attendees to share their own experiences, best practices, and challenges with regard to such initiatives.

 

#5: "Tackling the Tarriff: Aligning Best Practices and Aiming for Equity" Litsa Mourelatos, The American College of Greece

Abstract: One best practice to appraise student integrity breaches for discipline purposes comes from the UK developed Plagiarism Reference Tariff (2010). The international adoption foreseen by the tariff’s creators may not have included application of the tool to address other types of AI breaches, but its global applications were evident. This workshop will present the case of a unique institution (a hybrid of US and UK) and its recent adoption of a tariff based on the UK model to determine penalties for various AI violations. Participants will examine the aims and purposes of such an instrument, using it to examine three actual cases. How would such an instrument play out at participants’ institutions? To what degree would it facilitate or challenge decision-making processes?
