Academic integrity and student development: exploring dimensions for improving practice
21 November 2013, 10.00am–4:00pm
College Court Conference Centre, University of Leicester, Leicester, UK
This one-day event is designed for those working across UK higher education to explore the concept and principles of academic integrity in relation to student development and unacceptable academic practice, such as plagiarism and collusion. The event will provide a range of interactive sessions to stimulate discussion, and enable the sharing and application of evidence-informed practice. Throughout the event there will be a focus on academic integrity, and in relation to the following dimensions of practice, participants will have opportunities to consider:
· the integral role of teaching, learning and assessment;
· the implicit and explicit links between academic integrity, student employability and professionalism;
· the significance of student engagement in improving practice.
This event will be of interest and value to a variety of staff in higher education and particularly to lecturers from different disciplines; heads of educational development units; those working as learning technologists or in teaching and learning support roles; and staff in registry and quality.
This event builds on the HEA's work on academic integrity and the previous ASKe-HEA events on institutional policies and procedures for managing student plagiarism. The event is organised by the HEA in collaboration with Professor Jon Scott (University of Leicester) and Jane Thomas (Swansea University).
