Academic Integrity at UVM

Faculty: Looking for ways to incorporate academic integrity into your classroom? Want to ensure your students know about academic integrity expectations at UVM?

 Consider these options:

  • Include an academic integrity presentation during your class. Presentations can be tailored to your course and range from 10-30 minutes, depending on your needs.
  • Include learning modules in your Blackboard course. Pre-built modules and quizzes can be linked to your course site in Blackboard.
  • Incorporate academic integrity into course discussions through in-class exercises, discussion board topics, and iClicker quizzes.

Book Group Series (meets 4 times in spring semester):

Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty by James Lang

James Lang’s book, Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty, is a powerful resource for any teacher. The premise of the text is that since people cheat due to environmental conditions, instructors can design learning environments that dissuade academic dishonesty. More importantly, the conditions that deter cheating (a sense of intrinsic motivation, mastery-focused learning, lowered stakes, and self-efficacy) are the very same conditions that promote deep learning. Despite self-reports by college students that cheating is commonplace, when courses and assignments are designed carefully, students will not only be compelled to academic honesty, but they will also learn more.
