From Academic Integrity to Responsibility (FAIR) project

Overview

The FAIR project is a collaborative project between the Centre for the Study of Higher Education staff at the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning and staff at the School of Population Health. Within this project, an enhanced eLearning resource to support students' development of knowledge and skills relating to academic integrity will be created. Using a mobile web content approach, the resource will deliver a personalised learning experience, tailored to individual needs. 

The resource will be designed in line with national and University policy guidelines,and content will be developed in collaboration with academic staff, Academic Skills Unit staff and Library staff. It is envisioned that the content of the FAIR resource will focus on the underlying core principle of academic integrity. It will lead students through a guided series of practical activities and information designed to teach and assess their ability to understand and apply this core principle across the related themes of academic honesty, referencing, academic skills and professional/workplace conduct and skills. The resource will be designed for use on mobile devices across multiple platforms and the content will be adaptable for LMS subject sites, and will be customisable to suit the teaching needs of different disciplines. 

This project aims to demonstrate that through an innovative and effective use of eLearning, positive graduate outcomes can be enhanced.
