Academic Integrity as a Teaching & Learning Classroom Dynamic

Page Spiess, PhD

Dr. Spiess joined the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry in Spring 2017 as an Adjunct instructor, transitioning to a full-time lectureship role in Fall 2017. In her role as Academic Integrity Officer for Residential Programs, Dr. Spiess meets with each student suspected of academic dishonesty for an Intake Meeting before the case either progresses to a Restorative Justice Conversation or to an Academic Integrity Hearing. As the chair of the Academic Integrity Committee, Dr. Spiess leads the Academic Integrity Hearings in conjunction with the student Honor Board.

In this workshop faculty will get a brief overview of current NU Academic Integrity Procedures, and the institutional support provided to faculty, with questions by the Academic Integrity Officer, Page Spiess. Types of cheating, plagiarism, contract cheating, or ghostwriting, are prevalent at different levels in our various disciplines. Small breakout groups will be used to brainstorm how to construct assignments for your course that use student-led engaging activities to promote a culture of integrity and mitigate opportunities for academic dishonesty. Bring a syllabus or assignment to work on and gather ideas from group members and facilitators on how to lessen the likelihood of cheating/plagiarism in your student population. Help students honor their own academic efforts to meet the ethical standards of our institution and academic community!
