Intro

FutureLearn: Academic Integrity: Values, Skills, Action

 with  Jason Stephens

##

What is academic integrity? Why is it so important in academia? And how can you, as a student at university, achieve with integrity and honesty?

These are some of the important questions we’ll explore over the four weeks of the course. As we do so, you will hear from the lead educator as well as the perspectives of students like you.

Specifically, each week contains videos, articles, activities and quizzes that will help you develop the knowledge and skills needed to be a successful and ethical learner. There will also be opportunities for you to discuss your ideas with other students on the course and learn from their experiences and points of view.

By the end of the course, we hope you’ll come to understand the meaning of academic integrity and how to avoid academic dishonesty, misconduct and plagiarism but more importantly we hope you will also embrace the values associated with academic integrity as your own.

Additionally, and equally importantly, this course will help you develop study skills and academic writing skills needed to act in accordance with those values, and thus achieve with integrity.

No specific requirements. The course is mainly for university and college students, including undergraduates, postgraduates and doctoral candidates.

The course is very good I must say and it was fun doing all of the activities. I've learned a lot and I just want to say thank you for those people who come up with the creation of the course.
