A Student-Centered Culture: Promoting Integrity One Conversation at a Time

3rd Annual Plagiarism Education Week

In matters relating to academic integrity, Michael Goodwin creates a student-centered culture at his institution to better improve student engagement and cooperation with the process. Through an emphasis on proactive outreach, multi-partial advocates in disciplinary conferences, and by building student-centered academic integrity hearings, students become better equipped to take responsibility for their actions.

Learn about the benefits, the implementation process, and the key takeaways of having a student-centered culture at your institution in this session. It’s by creating this dialogue that Goodwin builds classroom and campus-wide buy-in to foster a much needed student-centered culture that benefits both students and educators.
