Acting with Academic Integrity means acting in all academic matters with honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage.
Instructors moving their courses to online/remote learning, may have questions regarding Academic Integrity (AI), especially if this is an unfamiliar assessment environment. This resource provides information and strategies that may be helpful to address AI at all stages in your online/remote course delivery, primarily focused on online assessments. Some of these strategies are adapted from the Smart Strategies section of the University of Toronto’s Academic Integrity website to suit the online teaching and assessment environment.
