ASCILITE/Turnitin – A positive approach to academic integrity and the potential future of artificial intelligence

In this session, we shine a light on how academic misconduct unfolds and the potential for artificial intelligence to mitigate risk and safeguard integrity.  Distinguishing between intentional and unintentional plagiarism and taking a positive academic integrity approach focused on awareness-raising, we will also explore the relationship between technology and contract cheating and how technology such as Turnitin can support you in cheating detection. A discussion of how educators and institutions can establish new cultural norms and standards to support this endeavour, is also covered.  Join us as we explore how higher education might need to prepare for the challenges and opportunities associated with artificial intelligence.
