Keynote Address – Dr Gordon Barnhart, University of Saskatchewan, Canada The Internet and Academic Integrity: A Modern Challenge to an Old Problem

With the invention of the internet and the ease by which students can steal information and include it in their academic papers without proper credit, universities around the world have had to renew their efforts to protect the academic integrity of their degrees. In 1999/2000, the University of Saskatchewan (Canada) approved new rules regarding academic integrity and independent appeal procedures at the College and University levels. Dr. Gordon Barnhart, University Secretary from 2000-2005, was charged with the implementation of these new rules and procedures. He also led a proactive campaign on three levels to encourage students not to cheat. Dr. Barnhart will outline the new procedures and the promotion used for academic integrity. He will also address the philosophical question: "If the number of cases of cheating is reduced, does this mean there are fewer students cheating or are the professors less vigilant in catching the infractions?"
