Student Success When Good Students Make Bad Decisions 9/22/2021 External Academic misconduct poses an existential threat to higher education. When we lose confidence in the skills and knowledge of our graduates, the value of their credentials and of higher education as a social good is called into question. In order to respond to this threat, we must understand the reasons why students cheat and address them at the faculty, university, and societal level. However, academic integrity is more than just the absence of cheating. True academic integrity requires an academic culture that promotes authentic learning and communities of mutual respect. While enforcement of policy is important, psychological research supports a holistic approach to academic integrity that includes a strong emphasis on personal ethical development, excellent pedagogy and a growth mindset focused on the goal of authentic learning 2:30 - 3:45 p.m. Online Free When Good Students Make Bad Decisions on 9/22/2021 Register Now
