Academic Integrity Resources

Academic Integrity @ Seneca College

Academic Integrity means that all Seneca College students will conduct themselves in an honest and trustworthy manner in all aspects of their academic career.

As an educator, you have an important role in modeling academic integrity principles for your students, embedding those practices in your teaching. One way of ensuring students are aware of academic integrity expectations at Seneca College is to embed tutorials and/or cartridges specific to Academic Integrity in your courses.

Seneca Libraries support Academic Integrity by providing teaching and learning resources that introduce students to the concept of plagiarism and resources that support citing. The easiest way to prevent plagiarism and engage in a scholarly conversation is to include citations for referenced materials.
Citing @ Seneca College

Citation of resources is an important part of Academic Integrity, as it engages students in scholarly conversation and prevents plagiarism.

As an educator, you have the responsibility to model best citing practices for your students. Ensure that all of your course resources follow correct citation and styling guidelines (MLA or APA), and that citation expectations are clearly outlined for students in your assignments.

One way of ensuring students are aware of citation guidelines is to embed tutorials and/or cartridges specific to citing in your courses.


  Visit the Guide to Citing Sources page for comprehensive support guides to MLA and APA citation styles.

Tutorials

Tutorials are self-directed elearning resources, which introduce the concepts of academic integrity and citing principles to students. You can go through a tutorial with students during class, share a link to a tutorial, or embed a cartridge with a tutorial in your MySeneca course.
