Winter 2021 PD Day
OCMA Winter 2021 PD Event
Building Academic Integrity with Online and In-Class Assessments
March 2nd, 2021
Fostering academic honesty is especially important during remote course delivery. Can we set up course assessments to promote integrity? Can we make cheating less worthwhile than doing the work fairly? A collection of techniques developed through years of in-person and hybrid teaching will be shared, as well as new approaches that have proven successful for online classes and tests.
Following the presentation there will be open discussion for members to share their successes and challenges maintaining academic integrity in their virtual math classes.
This PD event will also be OCMA’s first badging opportunity in association with CanCred.ca!
The event will be held Tuesday March 2nd via Zoom from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm.
During the PD you will hear from:
