PDC137829 - Staff Training Foundations of Academic Integrity

Course Details

Course Summary

Academic integrity is an important aspect of teaching and learning for us at CQUniversity, as it is for other educational institutions world-wide. We are committed to fostering awareness of academic integrity to empower both employees and students to become champions of the values and practices of academic integrity. This course provides you with an overview of academic integrity information, issues and guidance for academic staff in their teaching practice. Academic integrity, as you will learn in this course, means acting with the values of honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility and courage in CQUniversity's education, training and research communities. Academic integrity applies to all levels of education - from certificates to PhD. It is a shared responsibility across the University, requiring academic and professional/administrative support staff to promote, model and uphold the values and principles of academic integrity. As you work your way through this course, you will reflect on your role and how academic integrity relates to you.

Course Structures

Study Mode Definitions

  • Online: Online courses provide the flexibility to study without normally requiring a student to visit a campus. Course content is studied through a number of means including the use of online discussion forums, electronic library resources, by contacting lecturers and teachers, and receiving study materials online/electronically. Work integrated learning, including placements, may be included in some courses.
  • On-campus: Students studying in on-campus mode typically are expected to attend and participate in regular, structured on-campus teaching and learning activities throughout the University’s academic term. These activities may include lectures, tutorials, workshops and practice, online or other activities and normally will be timetabled at a CQUniversity campus or approved delivery site.
  • Mixed Mode: Students studying in mixed mode will participate in a combination of online learning activities in addition to site-specific learning activities, which may include residential schools, co-op placements and/or work-integrated learning as a compulsory requirement of a unit. The additional site-specific learning activities are what differentiates a mixed-mode unit from an online unit.

*All study modes may include Vocational placement and/or work integrated learning.
