|Box Lunch session focuses on "Encouraging Ethical Behavior in Class"|
The On Teaching Box Lunch discussion series continues Thursday, Nov. 15, with a session on "Encouraging Ethical Behavior in Class" from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. in the Red River Valley Room, Memorial Union.
There are many ways that dishonest or unethical behavior can find its way into the classroom. Plagiarism is a very real concern for many faculty members. Cheating on exams and other assignments is also a problem teachers have to address. Deciding how to deal with students who have been dishonest can present a dilemma for faculty. Are there ways, though, that a teacher might be able to head off some instances of academic dishonesty? Are there methods for communicating with students to help them understand the importance of academic integrity? Can a teacher make a student feel more accountable for his or her academic actions?
In this lunch session, we’ll discuss ways faculty can talk to students about academic honesty and also possible methods for discouraging dishonest behavior in the classroom. Please bring any examples of ways you’ve found to help students understand the importance of academic honesty.
To register and reserve a free box lunch, call Jana Hollands at 777-4998 by noon Tuesday, Nov. 13. Please indicate if you require a vegetarian meal.
