Treating Educational Integrity as an Academic Challenge: Useful Insights from Research on Learning and Teaching Values
While it is tempting and understandable to treat educational integrity primarily as a legal or administrative problem, such responses may be both inadequate and ultimately damaging to the academic values they seek to protect. In this session, we will consider how cultural values such as educational integrity are learned and taught -- and why they are so resistant to change. Recent research provides potentially useful, if sometimes surprising, insights into students' values and behaviors and suggests guidelines for more effective policy and practice.

Interactive Session - Ethical Dilemmas in the Degree Factory
Invited Speakers - Dr. John Atkins, Griffith University , and Dr. William Herfel, University of Western Sydney
Our paper, "Counting Beans in the Degree Factory", examines how material conditions can, and often do, constrain the capacity to act with academic integrity, particularly in the current context of severe resource limitations within Australian higher education. The paper concludes by raising the question of what constitutes ethical action when funds become stretched to the breaking point. In this workshop we explore not just this question, through a set of scenarios drawn from everyday experience within Australian higher education, but also the wider issue of what sort of institution do we want our universities to be. We will examine such issues as: who bears the responsibility for maintaining integrity in a workplace characterised by overwork and severe time restriction; what sort of tradeoffs between integrity and marketability are possible; what strategies are available to short circuit the vicious positive feedback cycle of declining standards and increased workload. The point of the workshop is to raise these issues for general discussion amongst the participants with the aim of canvassing as wide a range of positions as possible.
