Most faculty members prefer to focus on the positive elements to their jobs: facilitating the intellectual growth and skill acquisition of their students in their respective academic fields. As uncomfortable as it may be monitoring for academic dishonesty and overtly acknowledging and addressing the various cases of misconduct, this effort is critical to reducing an educational culture of dishonesty – and the central means of improving the larger social phenomenon of academic integrity.
The Centre for Academic Integrity (CAI) is housed under Student Success, however, there is no student success without effective teachers and academic mentors. The CAI is responsible to the faculty members of Lambton College by ensuring appropriate resources are in place for faculty in meeting the challenges they face in applying standards of academic integrity. As a faculty member, you may need to connect with others in the academic environment to seek training and assistance or to debrief about the implications or outcomes of confronting academic dishonesty with your students.
With the establishment of this new Centre, Lambton College commits to attending to faculty members who require training or other facilitative tools to support academic integrity. The College’s Learning Innovations Centre (LInC) offers professional development sessions on academic ethics, providing guidelines for what constitutes academic dishonesty and support for effective management of classroom and assignment-based cases of academic dishonesty.
For concerns over specific issues or incidences of academic dishonesty involving students, faculty members are encouraged to contact their Dean’s offices for guidance.
Please contact Lois Nantais, Coordinator, at the Centre for Academic Integrity for general information on approaching the challenges of academic dishonesty, or for support in implementation of standards of academic integrityin the College’s learning environment.
