Guidance for academic staff on recognizing, evaluating and referring instances of academic misconduct in student work
What staff need(s) will the workshop meet?
How can I recognise academic misconduct within my students’ work?
How do I evaluate signs of possible academic misconduct within student assessments?
If I suspect a case of academic misconduct, how do I gather the right evidence?
How do I present the evidence and go about writing the referral?
Through this you will...
explore key principles and signs of academic misconduct.
You will work with your colleagues in discussing actual examples from student work to evaluate which examples represent instances of real academic misconduct and distinguish between these and instances which are really examples of poor academic practice.
Working with examples, you will identify how you can gather and present meaningful evidence to ensure that you make a quality referral that an AIO can draw on in determining an outcome.
You will have the opportunity to ask questions concerning challenges you have faced in the past and discuss appropriate responses for the future.
