From the organizers of the Hostos conference:

A number of factors have spiked cases of academic dishonesty in recent decades. Whether due to the plethora of available material on the Internet, grade competition, or lack of interest in the subject matter, students are increasingly breaching codes of conduct set by their colleges. In turn, educators are struggling to respond to this alarming problem in a number of ways. The English Department’s Rigor Committee invites paper presentations that address issues of academic honesty and strategies for promoting a culture of accountability. What motivates students to cheat or to commit plagiarism? What constitutes cheating or plagiarism? Does culture or disciplinary expectations hinder academic integrity? How can we create an academic culture of intellectual integrity? We are especially interested in pedagogical presentations that promote best practices for preventing plagiarism. Topics may address but are not limited to:

 

Designing effective prompts
Disciplinary Expectations
STEM and intellectual ownership
Information literacy and library resources
Plagiarism Backrooms (paper mills, electronic resources for cheating, Google Docs sharing) Technology and plagiarism (Turnitin, SafeAssign)

Value ecologies (how to talk about or teach value, ethics, integrity)

Advising and Student Counseling on issues of academic honesty Institutional policy and activism
Plagiarism in professions

Culture and plagiarism
