This project aims to engage students inclusively in learning and developing academic integrity skills.

 

Disproportionally high numbers of academic misconduct investigations involve BAME, international, widening participation and students with a disability. Current teaching and learning to support academic integrity does not seem to be as effective for some student groups as for others, making it harder for them to follow good academic practice.

 

To address these issues of inclusion, this project will develop three innovations to engage all contemporary students in good academic practice as part of an effective approach to academic integrity:

 

A development model for student academic integrity champions

The team will co-create a step-by-step process to establish and maintain institutional student champions of academic integrity through recruiting, training and supporting them to promote academic integrity to their peers.

 

Inclusive and accessible academic integrity staff teaching resources

Activities and guidance for staff to deliver inclusive and accessible academic integrity education will be created using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles. The activities will include an awareness-raising workshop and templates for inclusive and accessible teaching resources.

 

Inclusive and accessible academic integrity student voice videos

With the recognition that making academic integrity inclusive and accessible to all students requires innovative and engaging materials, the team will support student participants to develop short, visually appealing, fully accessible videos which feature their voices, animation and memorable images to help students retain core academic integrity messages.

Inclusive and accessible academic integrity teaching resources

 

This project brings together inclusion and academic integrity. We define inclusion as follows: Inclusion involves celebrating differences in all aspects of who we are as individuals with every person respected, valued and supported.  We aim to integrate it within our practice to enhance engagement, participation, learning and choice for all.

 

Activities and guidance for staff to deliver inclusive and accessible academic integrity education have been created using Universal Design for Learning (UDL) principles and are available below. The activities include an awareness-raising workshop and templates for inclusive and accessible teaching resources.
