The University of Waterloo is in the process of designing online learning content about academic integrity for undergraduate students in STEM disciplines. We are looking to speak with undergraduate students from the faculty of Engineering, Science, and Math to learn about what you know about this topic, as well as differences you’ve seen or experienced since we’ve moved to an online learning environment. As Engineering, Science, and Math students with insights into the unique learning needs of your discipline, the feedback that you provide is valuable.
