Educational Integrity
(11am – 12pm)

This presentation is to promote educational integrity within the student lifecycle here at Macquarie. Being a student is quite stressful and when students don’t get the support they need, they may lean towards undertaking activities that are not acceptable practice. It is important that we support students throughout their journey, and this includes providing them with support with their assessment items.

Hosted by the Dean of Students Portfolio, the Head of Student Engagement, Inclusion and Belonging and the Student Advocates, this session will discuss the importance of supporting students through their journey here at Macquarie and will provide staff with a range of resources that staff can share with students to ensure they are supported.

Authentic Assessment and Assessment Design
(1pm – 2pm)

This presentation is to update staff on assessment design best practice by ensuring that assessments are not only authentic but engaging and aligns with sector best practice. Designing assessments is a bit of an art and therefore, it is important that when doing so best practice is kept in mind to ensure that our students achieve the most from their learning.

Hosted by the Pro Vice-Chancellor (Learning and Teaching) Professor Dominique Parrish, and e-Assessment Academic Dr Mathew Hillier, this session will provide staff with advice, tips, and hints on how they can ensure that assessment items they design are not only authentic but ensure the quality of learning and teaching within the Unit.

Identifying and Reporting Illegal Cheating Services
(2pm – 3pm)

This presentation is to update staff currency in the world of cheating. Illegal cheating services undermine the education sector across the globe, so it is important to keep up to date with what illegal cheating services look like, how they act, and how they target students. Stories from experience will be shared to ensure staff are equipped with the tools they need to identify, avoid, and report illegal cheating services.

Hosted by Macquarie University College’s Acting Program Manager Karen Mills and Governance & Quality Coordinator Andrew Jackson, this session will provide staff with advice on how to identify an illegal cheating service and what the process is for reporting.
