University of Waterloo developed the Foundations for Academic Success App through an eCampus Ontario research grant that was designed to develop strategies for enhancing student academic integrity (AI) knowledge and understanding by employing open access mobile technology with an innovative teaching approach. This is an open access application with a Creative Commons license so other institutions may copy and customize this tutorial to their own needs.
In this tutorial, you will be given the opportunity to consider the implications of integrity in your academic life and beyond. The intention is to help you understand the basic values of integrity, in hopes that you will strive to apply these values in your actions as a member of your campus community and in your everyday life.
The modules in this tutorial provide examples to illustrate the expectations of an academic community. Keep in mind, these are just a few scenarios and are not all-inclusive. For specific details please review your institution’s academic policies.
Studying, working, and living in a community of integrity upholds the quality of academic programs, the strength of research and nurtures social conscience.
