Academic Integrity Discussion hosted by Associate Provost Dennis Slavin
Tuesday, May 2, 1:00-2:00pm, Room 763 of the Newman Library
As we head into the last weeks of the semester, with final exams and papers on the horizon, some colleagues have reached out with questions on academic integrity issues. Please join Dr. Patricia Imbimbo (Baruch’s academic integrity officer), Dr. Ron Aaron (our AIC emeritus), Prof. Gerard Dalgish (our turnitin.com liaison), and Associate Provost Dennis Slavin for a discussion. We will review the college’s policies, offer suggestions for forestalling academic dishonesty, and try to answer any questions you might have. We’d like this to be a wide-ranging discussion with lots of ideas coming from you.
Please RSVP to Vanessa.Cano@baruch.cuny.edu
Multimodal assignments ask students to use more than one of the modalities (i.e. visual, audio, gestural, spatial or linguistic) to create a meaning. A common typical multimodal assignment is asking students to develop a PowerPoint slide deck to use while delivering an oral presentation. Another multimodal assignment might be a photo-essay. Earlier in the semester we explored various assignments. In this curated forum, we explore what ways faculty from across disciplines have approached assessing the work. Please click here to RSVP.
