Writing & Learning Peers Asia C. and Kaitlyn R. take us through some essential tips to prepare for your final exams
When issues of academic integrity are brought up, it's sometimes easy to dismiss them as just something that the "bad students" do. But sometimes, it is much more complicated than that. Let's talk about what to do and how to get help ethically.
SFU's Academic Integrity week is September 28 - October 2, 2020.
We know that this year is unlike any we've had before. You are learning from your own home, in front of a computer. In this context, academic integrity can be even more challenging than usual. It is also even more important.
Participate in academic integrity week to learn more about how to complete your work with integrity, and to celebrate the ways you already approach your learning and your work with honesty and integrity.
