ACIFA publishes formal Position on Academic Integrity paper


The Alberta Colleges and Institutes Faculties Association (ACIFA) has published a new report on its Position on Academic Integrity. Academic integrity is essential to the functioning of the AB postsecondary sector, the authors note, and cheating, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty threaten the system’s sustainability. To combat this, the report touches on key academic integrity topics such as faculty roles, the potential impact on and implications for workload or burnout, and the considerations around curriculum and assessment practices and technology. ACIFA outlines a series of recommendations for institutions, faculty, and centers for teaching and learning to ensure academic integrity is upheld without unduly overwhelming the faculty that uphold it.
