Keeta Gladue Headshot.jpg

Presenter: Keeta Gladue (she/her) is an Indigenous futurist, scholar, and researcher. Cree + Métis, Keeta brings more than fourteen years of experience in Indigenous post-secondary education and degrees in multiple disciplines to her work as a consultant and professional in higher education. Her fields of research include Indigenous mental health and wellness, post-secondary education, and academic integrity. Currently, she serves as the Ethics and Process Specialist for the Research Services Office at the University of Calgary and is a part of the Indigenous Research Support Team. A recent TEDx speaker, Keeta seeks to spark change and inspire momentum toward a shared future of flourishing. “Only together can we make things better.”

Description: The Indigenous Academic Integrity project provides insight into paradigms and practices founded in shared values and parallel ways of being. Using a multimodal approach to storytelling, including oral, visual, and written mediums, this presentation demonstrates the formal rigour, validation, and approaches found within Indigenous paradigms that serve to caretake and protect the integrity of knowledge. This resource provides concrete practices that centre Indigenous academic integrity and stem from Indigenous theories and Indigenous research, and it focuses on the principles of relationality, reciprocity, and respect.

Equity, diversity, and inclusion have never been more important to our global community than they are today. The inclusion of new ideas, new perspectives and diversity of thought are the focus of movements around the world. The caretaking of knowledge is fundamental to every culture and every people, yet academic integrity is often considered from a single perspective, a western, often legalistic, and individualist perspective. With growing international calls to decolonize and Indigenize post-secondary education, this presentation offers insight into the values-based, collectivist paradigms, and practices of Indigenous academic integrity.

The presentation will outline the Indigenous Academic Integrity project and how it seeks to explore the many ways of being, connecting, and learning which support both Indigenization and decolonization in the field of academic integrity.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Identify specific themes and principles of Indigenous paradigms.
  • Gain insight and examples of Indigenous paradigms in practice.
  • Ability to demonstrate concrete knowledge on differences between decolonization and Indigenization in the academy.

Dr. Alana Abramson will be leading a day-and-a-half long experiential workshop on using restorative justices approaches in response to academic integrity breaches. Register now as space is limited!

Workshop Description: Restorative justice is an approach to harm and conflict based on Indigenous ways of being and knowing and promising practices supported by social psychology, neurobiology, and education.  This training introduces the philosophy and practices of restorative justice and how these could be helpful in supporting faculty to have more restorative responses to harm related to academic integrity transgressions. The workshop has two parts and the participants are expected to attend both parts. The course will be experiential in nature. Participants will receive a manual during the training, as well as coffee and tea. 

About Alana: Alana has been teaching in the Criminology department of KPU for the last 15 years and has been involved as a researcher, trainer and practitioner of restorative justice since 1999. Her doctoral work focused on restorative justice and post-secondary educational settings and she is a passionate about finding innovative, meaningful, and relational ways to enhance the lives of students and faculty.

Creating a Culture of Academic Integrity: Steps, Strategies, Principles, and Practices 

What does a culture of integrity look like in the academy, and how can we create one – while also managing our many other commitments and interests in our classrooms and departments? This session shares research, resources, and strategies to help faculty, staff, and administrators build a culture of integrity, creating the conditions in which students better understand not only how to meet the expectations of academic integrity but also why they should. We’ll focus on what James Lang calls “small teaching” strategies, i.e., relatively minor changes that have big results, and participants will come away with specific practices and principles they can adapt for their own courses. 

Presenter: Dr. Laurie McNeill (she/her) is Professor of Teaching in the Department of English Language and Literatures at the University of British Columbia. Since 2015, she has been leading initiatives at UBC related to rethinking academic integrity (AI) policy, procedure, and pedagogy, including as principal investigator of a large teaching and learning project in first-year writing courses. Most recently, she has published the chapter “Changing “Hearts” and Minds: Pedagogical and Institutional Practices to Foster Academic Integrity” in Academic Integrity in Canada: An Enduring and Essential Challenge, edited by Sarah Elaine Eaton and Julia Christensen-Hughes (Springer, 2022). In 2022, her contributions were recognized with a Tricia Bertram Gallant Award for Outstanding Service from the International Centre for Academic Integrity. 

When: Tuesday, October 18th (4:00-5:15pm)

 

Hat Trick: Balancing Technology, Academic Integrity, and Stress Management Goals Using Alternative Assessments 

Technology is frequently cited as the direct cause of increased academic fraud over the past two and a half years of pandemic-driven, rapid adoption of online learning; it’s just as often promised as the only solution to this problem. However, over time, it has become clearer that technology is neither the sole cause of academic misconduct nor a “magic bullet” to protect academic integrity; instead, understanding how design of alternative assessments can reduce learner stress is more helpful in mitigating academic fraud and ensuring technology integration works for learners and educators (and not the other way around!). This workshop explains the interplay between technology, stress, and academic fraud and how to identify alternative assessments that can minimize student stress, improve student engagement, and protect academic integrity. 

Presenters: Dr. Elle Ting (she/her) is the Research and Projects Officer for the BC Council on Admissions and Transfer (BCCAT). A former English instructor, she has served in a variety of roles within the BC postsecondary ecosystem, including Education Council Chair and Research Ethics Board (REB) Chair at Vancouver Community College. Her engagement with diverse projects, ideas, and organizations complements her zeal for meaningful knowledge mobilization. Elle’s non-academic interests include eating, The Simpsons, and terrible wordplay. 

Dr. Andy Sellwood is an Instructional Associate in the Centre for Teaching, Learning, and Research at Vancouver Community College (VCC). Andy has taught adult upgrading and university transfer physics since 2003 and was also department head of science at VCC from 2010 to 2015. Andy’s interests lie in instructional design, program implementation and academic freedom. Outside of work Andy likes to run the trails of North Vancouver, drink craft beer, and play nerdy strategy games. 

When: Thursday, October 20th (2:00-3:00pm)
