This webinar addresses the different concerns about—and definitions of —“originality” across the units within higher-education institutions; provides a framework of three key types of academic-integrity strategies and matches those strategies to the needs of instructors, departments, and institutions; and offers examples of each academic-integrity strategy, best practices for each, and practical implementation tips.   

Faculty members utilize many tactics to help ensure that the work their students perform is conducted under rigorous conditions, and is created by or carried out by the students themselves. Especially with the rise of online learning, academic integrity has created a business model, with companies like Turnitin offering to compare student submissions against large databases of previous student work.

A lot of campuses, though, are finding that the big-database approach to academic integrity isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution (Lancaster & Culwin, 2007). That’s because there are various definitions of “originality” across the units of higher-education institutions.

Faculty members can undertake several specific actions to foster academic integrity across campus and in their courses. This webinar will share concrete practices you can use tomorrow to communicate expectations clearly for ethical conduct, which is much more effective than it is to have to catch cheaters after the fact.

Moving from “I caught you” to “I taught you” involves more than just sending student work to a database, but it’s worth the effort to understand originality regarding the expectations of the various disciplines across your campus.

This webinar is based on best practices gleaned from more than 25 years of classroom and online teaching in higher education, as well as research into the most effective methods for creating a climate of academic integrity on campus. The theoretical framework is my own, developed to help match academic-integrity techniques (database-submission, sanction statements, and the like) with specific types of assessments (papers, exams, projects, portfolio and group work).

  • Define originality specifically for the sciences, humanities, and social sciences
  • Customize academic-integrity strategies to the discipline taught and level of rigor expected of learners
  • Adopt academic-integrity strategies to create and sustain a climate of ethical behavior
  • 2-year & 4-year institutions
  • Academic Affairs/Instruction
  • Faculty (full and part-time)
  • Dean of Instruction
  • Department Chairs
  • Student Code Of Conduct Officers
  • Student Life Directors
  • First-Year Experience Coordinators
  • Summer Bridge Coordinators
  • Orientation Directors
  • Any educator interested in promoting academic integrity on campus
“Academic integrity is often perceived as a task of catching cheaters. While that’s part of it, we can deter more dishonest behavior by asking a few core questions about what we teach and what we expect from our students.”

Tobin spent five years as the Coordinator of Learning Technologies in the Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) at Northeastern Illinois University in Chicago, and is now a faculty developer and professional consultant in State College, Pennsylvania. He is an internationally-recognized speaker and author on topics related to quality in distance education, especially copyright, evaluation of teaching practice, academic integrity, and accessibility/universal design for learning.

Since the advent of online courses in higher education in the late 1990s, Tom’s work has focused on using technology to extend the reach of higher education beyond its traditional audience. He advocates for the educational rights of people with disabilities and people from disadvantaged backgrounds.

In the field of online-course and -program quality, he is best known for his work on administrative-evaluation techniques; his article on “Best Practices for Administrative Evaluation of Online Faculty” (2004) is considered a seminal work in the field, and has been cited in more than 150 publications.

Tom serves on the editorial boards of InSight: A Journal of Scholarly Teaching, the Journal of Interactive Online Learning, and the Online Journal of Distance Learning Administration.

His most recent book is Evaluating Online Teaching: Implementing Best Practices (Wiley, 2015) with Jean Mandernach and Ann H. Taylor. He is currently writing Reach Everyone, Teach Everyone: Re-Framing Universal Design for Learning in Higher Education, expected from West Virginia University Press in late 2017.
