Strategies for supporting academic integrity

Academic integrity has become a key focus in higher education. Plagiarism is a global concern with even the most prestigious institutions being rocked by cheating scandals in recent years. Students can easily access assignments online and contract cheating has become a big industry. If our work, and the genuine achievements of our students are to have any value, we need to have strong processes in place to prevent plagiarism and to engage both staff and students in academic integrity.
