The Center for Advancing Faculty Excellence will host a faculty professional development event noon-1:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 3, via Zoom. Dr. Cindy Blackwell, academic director of the Association of College and University Educators (ACUE), will give a talk titled “Leveraging High Impact Classroom Practices to Promote Academic Integrity.” For the Zoom link, please sign up online.
Being aware of why and how students cheat helps reduce academic integrity violations in your courses, Blackwell says. Once the why and how are considered, classroom practices can be considered to help promote academic honesty to get students more invested and engaged in your course.
Prior to joining ACUE, Blackwell served as the academic integrity officer for the University of Southern Mississippi where she also earned ACUE’s certificate in effective college instruction in 2017. She also served as an academic integrity facilitator and on the academic integrity panel at Oklahoma State University.
There will be time for questions as part of the discussion, and there also will be a drawing for copies of James Lang’s book titled Cheating Lessons: Learning From Academic Dishonesty.
