Ask the Academic Resource Center (ARC): Best Practices for Studying Together
Open to all undergraduates | Virtual
12 — 1 p.m.
Studying together can be one of the most effective ways to learn. It can also feel like a grey area when it comes to academic integrity. What’s okay to work on as a group? When is it okay to ask for help and share information, and when does it cross the line into unauthorized assistance? Join the team from the GS Academic Resource Center for a Q&A session on best practices for studying together, with a special focus on how to stay on the right side of academic integrity expectations.

Explore quick strategies for citing sources using familiar tools already at your fingertips. Join members of Columbia University Libraries as we learn about gathering citations from CLIO, databases, and Zotero.

Making It Hard to Cheat
Grad Student CTL Workshop | IN PERSON
2:40 — 4:10 p.m.
How can we design courses and assignments that discourage or make it difficult to cheat? Although cheating will continue to be a persistent problem, the research on cheating suggests that there are predictable conditions that can induce cheating. At this session, we’ll explore the research on cheating in higher education and use it to devise strategies to reduce cheating and even improve students’ overall performance in our courses by fostering their own intrinsic motivations to learn deeply in our classes.
Friday, February 18
Ethics & Integrity, Professional Development & Leadership (Graduate SEAS)
9 — 11 a.m.
Develop your ethical orientation to demonstrate academic and professional integrity in your future careers. This session is offered by Graduate SEAS Professional Development and Leadership (PDL) please email PDL-SEAS@columbia.edu to register.
In honor of Academic Integrity Awareness Week 2022, SEAS GSA invites you to view Dear Evan Hansen. Students will have all of Friday, February 18th to watch the film. Based on the Broadway production, Dear Evan Hansen follows a teen on his journey of self-discovery and ethics as he navigates the events following the loss of a classmate. More details on how you can access the film will be made available closer to the date to those who RSVP.
Looking to create learning environments that support undergraduate students in upholding the values of academic integrity? Want to share and co-create a list of pre-emptive strategies with faculty across disciplines that you can use in your own courses?
In this session, we will first explore James Lang’s theory of cheating, which highlights five contextual factors prevalent in classrooms that may induce academically dishonest behaviors. We will then collaboratively develop strategies that lessen or eliminate the impact of these factors to reduce cheating in our own courses. Come share and learn new preventative strategies with other faculty to avoid classroom experiences with academic dishonesty.
