How has technological, economic, and political disruption impacted students’ engagement, motivation, and resilience? How are Australian and New Zealand universities responding to this, to protect students' wellbeing?
An engaging panel session at Chartered ABS Annual Conference 2023 to reflect the changing student expectations for a more flexible and personalised education; panel guests explored the opportunities and challenges and how this all affects learning and teaching strategy. Lewis McKinnon reflects on the key takeouts.
Experts from universities in the UK and Australia and the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) discuss the critical topic of academic integrity in the UK - how we can support staff and students, how to embed academic integrity within the learning journey, and advice for institutions to work holistically in order to support academic integrity and stamp out contract cheating companies.
Students have been hitting the headlines in relation to increased levels of cheating just as a new Essay Mills (Prohibition) Bill was put forward to the UK Parliament last month. However, most students don't intend to be dishonest - so how do we provide formative academic integrity feedback and enhance self-efficacy?
