Teaching: Designing Assignments for Academic Integrity

How can you create assignments that decrease students’ motivation to procrastinate or cheat? This session will outline three research-based levels of design action to enhance academic integrity. Then, we will workshop your own assignments to enhance academic integrity. Please come with an assignment description that is formatted for a syllabus as well as a rubric, if one is available. If you do not have an assignment handy, you can work with a sample we provide.

This workshop is part of the Instructor Practices for Effective Teaching series for GW instructors seeking strategies to increase student engagement, build an inclusive community, and communicate with learners in new ways. Workshops in this series are sponsored by the Instructional Core. The Instructional Core provides comprehensive, integrated solutions for instructors in search of teaching solutions. If you need feedback on assignment or syllabus design, advice on teaching methods, or ideas for new activities, consider booking a consultation with the Instructional Core.

All sessions are free to GW students, faculty, staff, and alumni. GW has an institutional commitment to ensuring that all of our programs and events are accessible for all individuals. If you require any accommodations to participate in this event, please contact at least 72 business hours (3 business days) prior to the event.
