Ensuring academic integrity in your courses can be fraught with challenges, especially when a course has online or take-home assessments. While the availability of AI tools like ChatGPT have injected new urgency to this concern, there are there steps you can take to help your students abide by the University’s Code of Academic Integrity or the MBA Code of Ethics.

During this session, we’ll review the social, institutional, and technological factors that contribute to student cheating; describe the tools and best practices that discourage cheating on assignments and exams; and arm you with steps you can take if you think an academic integrity violation has happened.
