Teaching Resource Center and the Office of the Provost Present
Keynote speaker will be Anne Hayner, Associate Director for International Development and Alumni Relations, Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame. A continental breakfast and boxed lunch will be served.
Students traveling across cultures may encounter different cultural definitions of cheating and plagiarism, which can lead to academic crises. What are the cultural influences on academic ethics and what do we know about best practices for cross-cultural training on plagiarism and cheating? This session will address the dilemmas of academic integrity in the modern world, from the complex nuances of academic misconduct to the unique challenges facing international students in the United States and U.S. students abroad. We will review current approaches to the problem and consider tools, resources, and partnerships across the university to educate students in order to prevent crises.
