Feedback form is now closed.

Academic integrity has been an increasing concern as courses moved online due to COVID-19. Academic misconduct is a challenge to equity, fairness, and learning. A team of experts will discuss the state of academic integrity today, the misunderstandings and behaviors that often lead to academic dishonesty, and solutions to keep students honest, engaged, and learning. The panel will introduce a framework for academic integrity designed to support faculty teaching and student learning. Normalizing academic integrity will require tremendous effort from the entire educational ecosystem, including advocates for OER. We will explore ways in which OER can evolve to provide resources supporting online learning, open pedagogy, and authentic assessments that can be used to better measure student understanding.

After participating in this session, attendees will be able to:
  • Understand how open pedagogy, authentic assessments for OER content, and new OER resources can assist faculty in evaluating student understanding
  • Appreciate how the challenge of academic integrity has accelerated during COVID-19
  • Understanding of how technology has been leveraged by "for profit" companies to provide students of means access to solutions, essay writing, etc
  • Walk away with three strategies on how OER can be used to enhance academic integrity
