Promoting Academic Integrity in the Classroom

Dr. Christina Frei, Inaugural Executive Director of Languages

Tuesday, October 15 | 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

Graduate Student Workshops

Convener: Bridget Swanson, CTL Fellow, Gemanic Languages and Literatures

Location: Max Kade German Culture and Media Center, 3401 Walnut St, Room 329 A

Summary: As Penn’s Guide to Academic Integrity maintains, academic honesty makes scholarship within and across disciplines possible. Faculty and instructors can help instill this core value in their students, both by exemplifying integrity and by employing methods that encourage honest practices. In this workshop, Dr. Christina Frei, Executive Director of Language Instruction in the School of Arts and Sciences, will help us develop strategies to promote academic integrity in our classrooms. This workshop will specifically address ways to:
• clearly articulate expectations and resources for students
• create assessments in a way that discourages cheating, plagiarism, and improper collaboration
• identify and appropriately respond to academic dishonesty when it occurs

All graduate students are welcome. This event grows out of concerns in the Gemanic Languages and Literatures department and so may be most useful to students in related fields.
Counts toward the CTL Teaching Certificate.
