General Information and Hotel Reservations


Theme
Integrity in the Real World

Overview
Among the many challenges we face in promoting and building cultures of integrity is the unfortunate perception many students have that what happens at schools and universities is different and disconnected from what happens in “the real world.”

 

Why do we have to cite sources, they ask, when no one does that “in the real world?” Why do we have to do our work individually, when people collaborate all the time “in the real world?” Anyone familiar with workplaces outside academia knows, of course that there is something to those claims—teamwork is essential in many workplaces and the way that previous author’s work is acknowledged does vary from context to context. It is a fair question to ask, and one that deserves our attention.

 

So that we may better understand and articulate the connection between academic integrity and integrity issues in other contexts, the theme for this year’s conference in Vancouver is “Integrity in the Real World.” Presenters and delegates will be invited to explore the connections between the work we do with students and ethical issues in the world at large.
