One of the (perhaps more unusual) academic integrity issues that can arise is a situation in which students advertise unit notes for sale through iLearn – for example, by using a discussion forum to actively advertise a link to an external website where unit notes can be purchased. This could go against the principles set out in the University Academic Integrity Policy and if it happens, Unit Convenors need to respond appropriately.
Here’s what to do if this happens in your unit:
- Take a screen shot or copy of the post
- Delete the post
- Warn the student and advise that the Faculty will be in contact with them
- Contact Kylie Coaldrake at firstname.lastname@example.org with details so that an official warning can be issued to the student and attach your screen shot / copy of the post
More generally, you can also refer students to the Academic Integrity Module in iLearn – refer to this Teche post for more information. You can also see student responsibilities under the Policy set out in Schedule 1 – Point 10 and see examples of unacceptable academic activities under Schedule 2 – Part B.
