Vengeance or Justice: Helping Instructors Build Bridges Between Accountability and Education When Handling Academic Misconduct
Courtney Cullen talks about Academic Integrity.
Faculty face potential academic misconduct every time they assess their students. When confronted with cases of potential academic misconduct, the emotional burden of reporting students through a formal process can seem daunting and the inner turmoil causes stress. Often, the thought of a harsh punishment feels right, but is it? As educators, you can choose to turn this poor decision into an educational opportunity while still holding your students responsible for their decisions. This workshop will discuss the advantages of an educational approach in helping students develop morally. Come prepared to develop your own ‘best practices’ for reacting to academic misconduct.
