Best Practices, October: Academic Integrity

Upcoming Events

Fulfilling your Duty to Accommodate - TA/GA Workshop Series

Thursday September 29, 2016, 12:00-2:00pm, POD372

Some educators cringe when they hear “student with a disability” or “duty to accommodate.” Questions arise about academic integrity and fairness. This workshop will dispel myths and clarify facts about meeting your legal obligation to accommodate students with disabilities. Workshop attendees will learn about the various disabilities that challenge Ryerson’s Academic Accommodation Support registrants; what to do when a student discloses they have a disability; and investigate some of the best practices for accessible delivery of your tutorials.

Academic Integrity: An Essential Guide for TAs and GAs - TA/GA Workshop Series

Tuesday October 4, 2016, 12:00-2:00pm, POD 372

This workshop will provide attendees with an overview of academic integrity at Ryerson University. Information and examples will be provided on the types of misconduct that can occur and the University policies and procedures that must be implemented when academic misconduct is suspected. In addition, tips and tricks on how to spot academic misconduct when marking and grading will be discussed. This workshop will be particularly useful for any TAs and GAs who are and will be grading assignments and examinations.

New Policy 60 & Final Exam Procedures Workshop - Faculty Workshop Series

Wednesday October 5, 2016, 12:00-2:00pm, POD 372

Ryerson’s Academic Integrity Office (AIO) promotes a culture of integrity and educational excellence by informing, inspiring, and educating students and faculty. The AIO is responsible for educating students and faculty on the various methods to maintain academic integrity. The AIO offers definitions of academic misconduct (including plagiarism, cheating and personal misrepresentation), how to avoid the pitfalls that may result in unintentional academic misconduct, and the procedures surrounding suspected breaches in academic integrity. This workshop concentrates on how recent changes to the final exam policy and Senate Policy 60 affect teaching and learning.

Sexual Violence Support and Education Workshop - Faculty Workshop Series

Wednesday October 19, 2016, 12:00-2:00pm, POD 372

Ryerson’s Office of Sexual Violence Support and Education (OSVSE) works from the premise that consent comes first. The OSVSE provides support to the survivors who guide a process while counsellors provide options. How people experience, heal from, and address sexual violence is shaped by the multitude of social locations (for instance, class, sexuality, gender). This workshop discusses the various supports, information, education, statistics, reporting and complaint mechanisms found in Ryerson’s policy on sexual violence approved by the Board of Governors in June 2015.
