Academic Integrity: Defining Originality across Campus


Institutions can undertake several specific actions in order to foster academic integrity across campus. Create campus-wide definitions and decision processes, including an academic integrity policy and consistent definitions and penalties for infractions. Such documents should contain input from all campus stakeholders (e.g., faculty, students, and support areas).
Set up regular communication among faculty who teach the same students, and consider creating an academic integrity reporting/review board for handling cases in a formal way.
There are also several course-level best practices…

Methodology for Building a Culture of Innovation

This document represents the progress we’ve made so far. In it, we’ve tried to share what we learned and define what we believe are the necessary components of an innovation culture. We have also synthesized this learning into a new framework and self-assessment tool that we hope can help organizational leaders determine how they are doing, where they are in the process and what steps might be prioritized to make additional progress in building a culture of innovation.

Bookmark this site that debunks absurd Internet rumors in real time

If you’re tired of celebrity death hoaxes and misreported news bulletins, a rumor-tracking site dedicated to sorting fact from fiction might be your new favorite. 

As evolving technologies and expectations force media outlets to report the news as quickly as they can, errors and misreporting happen more often they should (even here at Mic from time to time). 

That’s why Emergent is potentially game-changing.Follow micdotcom

Anita Sarkeesian shares the most radical thing you can do to support women online
Anyone looking to support women suffering from harassment online has a surprisingly simple place to start, says Anita Sarkeesian, founder of the web video series Feminist Frequency. “One of the most radical things you can do is to actually believe women when they talk about their experiences,” Sarkeesian told the audience today at XOXO Festival in Portland. It’s radical in part because of misinformation campaigns organized against high-profile women that accuse them of making up the threats against them — and it’s an issue that Sarkeesian has recent experience dealing with.

Insights from the time-diaries collected from Americans over the past 11 years show we’re shifting in our priorities.
If you can’t catch a breath during the frantic daily grind, don’t blame it on not having any free time.
Americans actually have more leisure time, are less rushed, less stressed, and sleep much more than we think we do. According to sociologist John Robinson, or better known as “Father Time” to his colleagues, most people have around 40 hours of free time per week.
Robinson, a professor at the University of Maryland and director of the Americans’ Use of Time Project, has been studying how people spend their time for more than 50 years. In 1972, he became one of the first social scientists to collect detailed time diaries of people all over the country. According to his massive studies and research, Robinson tells Fast Company that modern Americans only merely feel like we are working more hours and we also tend to exaggerate about our work hours since the actual hours on the job have been decreasing steadily for the past 40 years.
If this is the case, then why don’t we feel like we have more time and what exactly are we spending our time on? Below Robinson gives us the major findings from decades of time-use and social attitudes research:

Want teens to pay attention? Tell them they're being manipulated

In our digital world, are young people losing the ability to read emotions?

Scientists report that sixth-graders who went five days without even glancing at a smartphone, television or other screen did substantially better at reading emotions than sixth-graders from the same school who, as usual, spent hours each day looking at their smartphones and other screens.
