Exploring Academic Integrity Tutorial

The PRIMO "Site of the month" for April was Exploring Academic Integrity Tutorial, authored by Char Booth, Dani Brecher Cook, Sara Lowe, Sean Stone, and Natalie Tagge.
There is a text interview with the first two named authors at
"The Exploring Academic Integrity Tutorial (EAIT) introduces students to the idea of being part of the scholarly conversation, and by extension the rights and responsibilities that come with being part of a scholarly community. This focus – one of inclusion and participation – was intended by its Claremont Colleges Library creators to present a contrast to many other academic honesty tools, which in our observation tended to focus more on the punitive aspects of academic dishonesty (e.g., the negative ramifications of plagiarism, etc.). The interactive online EAIT consists of four core sections, each with a thematic tie to concepts from information literacy and information ethics. By the end of the tutorial, the goal is that students feel a more personal connection to the production and use of scholarly material, and a more nuanced understanding of academic honesty as a result. The tutorial also features historical images from the Claremont Colleges Digital Library, to personalize it to our campuses."
