Facilitated by Dr. Anita Chaudhuri, UBC Okanagan’s Faculty Advisor on Academic Integrity, this panel session provides an opportunity to discuss issues of academic integrity across teaching and learning. It will include information about UBC Okanagan’s recently revised discipline for academic misconduct regulation and centralized supports and resources for addressing academic misconduct through an educative approach. This will be followed by a panel discussion that will introduce academic integrity in classrooms, connect academic integrity to discipline-specific concerns, and discuss strategies to perform/practice academic integrity to inform professional identity. Faculty, Teaching Assistants and students are encouraged to attend and participate in this conversation.
