Why create shared frameworks
As a global education provider, Navitas has developed considerable expertise in a range of specialisations to support delivery of high quality education. Learning and Teaching Services leads the development of frameworks to identify examples of this good practice and connect it with evidence from the research as well as our own discipline expertise in learning and teaching. These frameworks can be used to provide principles for good practice, guide enhancement and innovation, ensure consistency and inform policy.
Plagiarism, ghostwriting and essay mills are representative of a broader challenge that affects the quality and reliability of educational awards and research. In response to rising concern about these challenges to academic integrity, the Higher Education Standards Framework, released in 2017, requires a two-pronged approach: that institutions will ensure preventative action and provide strategies to improve student performance.
Navitas Learning and Teaching Services has been working with colleges to create a framework which:
- provides a developmental, collective approach that incorporates best practice and the Higher Education Standards Framework, and;
- provides practical examples for promoting academic integrity in teaching and learning practice.
The framework can be used, or adapted by Divisions, Campuses and Colleges, academic leaders and individual teachers to support their curriculum, course delivery and teacher development objectives.
The Academic Integrity Framework is predicated on the following set of contemporary learning principles:
This is an evolving framework – please help us to keep refining and improving it by providing your constructive feedback and ideas!
Should Divisions, Academic Units or campuses want to receive the Academic Integrity Framework document, or re-organise the framework to suit their specific learning and teaching principles and pedagogies, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
