Redesigning assessment to reduce plagiarism and other forms of academic misconduct
Academic integrity and academic conduct policy have been the focus of an EU funded IPPHEAE project (http://ippheae.eu), some of the findings of which have been recently reported in the Times Higher Education (THE). This workshop will briefly outline what the findings from the project mean for Coventry University (CU) and UK HE in general and what CU has done recently about this and what work is in progress. It will also briefly explore what still needs to be done and how teaching practitioners can and should help. With reference to the emerging threats on academic integrity and with a ’putting it into practice’ focus, this workshop will ask participants to explore what can be done to redesign assessment and better engage students from a variety of learning cultures and backgrounds in the academic process to encourage deeper learning and lower the risk of plagiarism and other forms of academic misconduct.
