Renison Professor Alice Schmidt Hanbidge, Librarian Tony Tin, and their University of Waterloo project team, have been selected as the recipients of the International E-Learning Award (Mobile Learning category) in the Academic Division. This award is in recognition of their work on their IntegrityMatters project and paper, funded by eCampus Ontario.
The International E-Learning Awards are presented each year for the best work in e-learning, mobile learning, and blended learning.
The goal of the research project was to address the challenge that universities face in identifying the best approach when engaging students with Academic Integrity content. Most universities rely on instructors to cover this information; however, the consistency and quality of the delivery of this information varies considerably. Academic integrity resources and policies are available at post-secondary institutions, but are often presented in static and unengaging ways. The IntegrityMatters project engaged in research to determine the best ways to teach issues of academic integrity to the current generation of students. The ultimate aim is to better equip and educate students so that they avoid academic infractions.
Schmidt Hanbidge and Tin were also invited to present a workshop on their academic integrity project at the International Conference on Interactive Mobile Communication Technologies and Learning (ICL2018) hosted in Kos, Greece.
