Fall Teaching Conference Workshop: Academic Integrity in Education


Monday, August 23, 2021, 12:30pm to 1:30pm



Brett Flehinger, Associate Dean of Academic Integrity and Student Conduct
Brigitte Libby, Assistant Dean for Academic Integrity and Student Conduct

What should you know about academic integrity at Harvard College as you prepare to teach this year as students return to the classroom (or enter for the first time)?  This session offers an overview of the Honor Code, the Honor Council, and the most common types of concerns that come to the Council. We will also offer suggestions for how you can help students approach their academic work with integrity and learn as effectively as possible. As James Lang writes in Cheating Lessons (Harvard University Press, 2013, p. 39), “The environments which reduce the incentive and opportunity to cheat are the very ones that…will lead to greater and deeper learning by your students.”

This session is part of the Fall Teaching Conference, which is designed to prepare new and experienced graduate student teachers for their roles as Teaching Fellows in the FAS. Pre-registration is required. Learn more here.
