Talking About Teaching

12:00 PM  - 1:00 PM
Friday Nov 17, 2017
DeWitt Wallace Library 309

Ginny Moran, Research & Instruction Librarian, will present "Academic Integrity in Real Life:  When Good Intentions Go Bad."  None of our students set out to be academically dishonest, but things go awry.  Deadline pressures, desire for good grades, poor planning, easily available online answers, not knowing where to draw the line between collaboration and individual work…These are all points at which students sometimes make a poor choice and do something that is not in their best academic interest.   Moran will talk about the work she does with students who find themselves in this situation and are referred to complete “the academic integrity module,” and what that means.  She will also show a new resource available for the Macalester community to foster classroom conversations about the gray areas of academic integrity and how you might use them in your classrooms and in your advising.  Bring your questions and concerns for conversation.  All faculty welcome.  Lunch will be provided.
