Title:"Academic Integrity-facts, myths, and classroom realities"
Seminar:Teaching Seminar
Speaker:Dr. James Sellers, Penn State
Abstract:
All of us have read the university's statement on academic integrity and have posted the relevant information in our syllabus materials. Many of us have also experienced that sinking feeling when we realize that a student has stepped "over-the-line", and that we will need to take remedial action. Our shared history with academic integrity includes many myths, urban legends, quirky stories, serious and potentially confrontational moments, and at times regrets that we did not act differently in specific situations. Please join us at our Feb 23, 11:30-1:00 Teaching Seminar, when Dr. James Sellers, Associate Head for Undergraduate Studies in the Mathematics Department will "lay bare the facts" by sharing his experiences as a member of the college's academic integrity committee, and as the initial point-of-contact for academic integrity issues within the mathematics department. This informal talk will discuss the current academic integrity policies of the college, the online academic integrity resources currently available, and most importantly, Dr. Sellers' experiences with the implementation of these policies. There will be plenty of time for Q&A so please bring your concerns, questions, and "sanitized" stories.
