Academic dishonesty continues to present educators, administrators and students with challenges that threaten the quality of the teaching and learning experience. Meaningful learning happens when educational organizations recognize and commit to the core values of Academic Integrity (AI): honesty, trust, fairness, respect and responsibility, even when faced with adversity. It takes courage to commit and live these values (International Centre for Academic Integrity, 2013). There is great importance to acculturating students to the values of AI with respect to their learning since evidence supports the fact that the behaviours attached to these values carry over to professional practice and benefit future service recipients, workplace organizations and society as a whole.

One School of Health Sciences (SHS) experience with shifting and strengthening a culture of AI across all programs will be the focus of this interactive workshop. This session will outline the Influencing Academic Integrity Model (IAIM) created and implemented by the School of Health Sciences at Humber College. This model served as the framework for change and provided a holistic approach in building a sustainable culture of integrity. Participants will learn about the challenges, benefits and successes of the AI initiative. Participants will have the opportunity to examine and learn practical steps in the application of the IAIM model to support their own future efforts in their educational organizations. Current literature and research will be highlighted for consideration as participants learn about the requirements to shifting or strengthen a culture of AI. The concepts of leadership, synergism, and the commitment of all teaching and learning partners both internally and externally to the academic institution will be explored throughout the presentation in an interactive approach that includes small group work exercises as well as a lively audio-visual presentation. Join us to discuss and apply the IAIM model to see how your institution can begin their transformation!
