The National Academic Integrity Network
Webinar, 14.30-16.00, September 10, 2020
Academic Integrity in 2020 and beyond: selected issues,challenges and solutions for higher education
At the last meeting of the Network, it was proposed by the members that a webinar for staff focusing on academic integrity would be very useful, to take place prior to the beginning of the new 2020-2021 academic year. Therefore, this webinar is aimed at academic staff working in all areas across the higher education sector. The overall aims of the webinar are to (re-)introduce academic integrity to a wide audience of higher education professionals, to explore the issues and challenges regarding academic integrity especially in the current context of online and remote teaching, learning and assessment, to reflect on our particular challenges in the Irish context, and explore solutions which may support effective learning and mitigate the temptation for students to engage in any breaches of conduct or contract cheating. The Network also hopes to stimulate and invigorate ongoing conversations on this topic which for some staff may be a relatively new area.

QQI, in collaboration with the National Forum for the Enhancement of Teaching and Learning in Higher Education (NFETL), is hosting a series of events and engagements during 2020 on the topic of work-based assessment. This series, which commences on June 17, 2020, will allow participants to raise and discuss issues faced and highlight examples of good practice.
