Academic Integrity - call for case studies in art, design and media

Date posted: 18/11/2009

The Academy / JISC Academic Integrity Service (AJAIS)

The key aims of this initiative are to enhance understanding of issues relating to academic integrity in the higher education community, and to highlight resources and encourage the sharing of best practice in this area. The AJAIS is working to identify subject-specific issues relating to academic integrity, and to improve the support provision for staff in higher education by ensuring that there is a coherent range of resources, including guidelines and studies. These might, for example, recommend strategies for embedding students’ skills development in discipline areas, or illustrate how assessment activities might be designed in ways that tend to lessen opportunities for plagiarism.

Call for art, design and media case studies

Do you use innovative teaching and learning approaches in this area that you would like to share with others? We are planning to collect and share case studies that focus on areas relating to academic integrity, such as approaches involving formative assessment, or which require students to work collaboratively in teams - how have these assessment activities been devised to, for example, ensure that students develop good academic practices (and deter incidences of both text and non text-based plagiarism or collusion)? 

We would welcome your interest in writing case studies and we have further information and guidelines available on the ADM-HEA website:

Please submit your studies by Friday 8th January 2010

Case studies will be reviewed by the ADM-HEA and AJAIS and evaluated for their relevance to the subject community, transferability and innovation.  Successful case studies will be added to the collection on the ADM-HEA website and may be included in future ADM-HEA and Academy publications.  Authors will receive a £300 fee.
