Online workshop on academic integrity

Online workshop: Building a Community that Values Academic Integrity takes place February 25 - March 7, 2008. The moderators are Gary Pavela, Director of Judicial Programs and Student Ethical Development, University of Maryland and Kimberly Bonner, Executive Director, Center for Intellectual Property, University of Maryland University College. This is a priced workshop.
"Studies show that establishing a community of shared academic values fosters academic integrity in the classroom. However, establishing that community may be more difficult when students adopt the values of a digital "remix" culture that challenges the traditional understanding of authorship. How do institutions foster academic integrity values in light of changing cultural norms? Are there special techniques and tools required? Are the best tools to use in preventing academic dishonesty "technical" like And are there additional legal and ethical issues involved when using technical measures to prevent academic dishonesty?"
