Free Virtual Conference

The Southeast chapter of the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI) is hosting a FREE conference on Nov. 6, and you’re invited to present! Technically, USF (via ATLE) is hosting this conference, and it's all online. 

WHO: higher education faculty, staff who support integrity, high school teachers, and both graduate and undergraduate students 

WHAT: Synchronous online presentations, only 15 minutes long, that emphasize the sharing of practices, examples, and case studies. These are NOT research presentations. 

WHEN: Friday, Nov. 6, from 2pm to 5pm (Eastern) 

WHERE: fully online 

We think a wide variety of presentations by different audiences would be a fit for this conference: 

  • Staff and Administrators 
    • integrity policies and honor codes
    • ​​​​​​​policy adjustments made for the switch to remote learning
    • establishing a culture of integrity amongst students
    • onboarding and training of incoming students
    • remediation efforts for students caught cheating
  • Faculty, Instructors, and Teachers 
    • assignments and strategies to prevent cheating
    • adjusting assignments with academic integrity in mind for the remote and/or online environment 
    • technology used to uncover cheating (plagiarism detection, proctoring software)
    • plagiarism, self-plagiarism, unintentional plagiarism
    • contract cheating (papers for hire)
    • exposing students’ new cheating techniques (including Chegg, GroupMe, etc)
    • ethics of reporting/non-reporting students once caught
  • Students 
    • creating a peer culture of integrity
    • reporting on students who cheat (and/or the ethics around reporting)
    • ways student organizations, clubs, government, and individuals can alter campus culture on integrity
