    Concerned about academic dishonesty in your classes? Join our Collaboratory and submit an abstract to the CUNY-Wide Conference on Academic:


    Eugenio María de Hostos Community College

    Sept. 29, 2017

    Keynote Speaker: Sandra Jamieson, Drew University


    A number of factors have spiked cases of academic dishonesty in recent decades. Whether due to the plethora of available material on the Internet, grade competition, or lack of interest in the subject matter, students are increasingly breaching codes of conduct set by their colleges. In turn, educators are struggling to respond to this alarming problem in a number of ways. The English Department’s Rigor Committee invites paper presentations that address issues of academic honesty and strategies for promoting a culture of accountability.

    What motivates students to cheat or to commit plagiarism? What constitutes cheating or plagiarism? Does culture or disciplinary expectations hinder academic integrity? How can we create an academic culture of intellectual integrity? We welcome individual or collaborative 15-minute oral presentations, Powerpoint or interactive presentations, as well as lightning roundtable discussions. We are especially interested in pedagogical presentations that promote best practices for preventing plagiarism. Topics for papers in any format may address but are not limited to:

    Designing effective prompts

    Disciplinary Expectations

    STEM and intellectual ownership

    Information literacy and library resources

    Plagiarism Backrooms (paper mills, electronic resources for cheating, Google Docs sharing)

    Technology and plagiarism (Turnitin, SafeAssign)

    Value ecologies (how to talk about or teach value, ethics, integrity)

    Advising and Student Counseling on issues of academic honesty

    Institutional policy and activism

    Plagiarism in professions

    Culture and plagiarism

    Please send questions and/or abstracts of 250-400 words to Jason Buchanan and Michael Cisco at by July 15.
