Identifying Challenges in Writing Across Borders Workshop Series: Academic Integrity

Thursday, October 21, 2021 | 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM
The registration period has closed for this event.

While Queen’s University is becoming more culturally diverse, this trend has given rise to concerns about academic integrity as students from diverse cultural, educational, and linguistic backgrounds seem to be at high risk of committing plagiarism. Contrary to the portrait that depicts international students as persistent plagiarizers, this workshop intends to delve into why plagiarism seems to pose a problem for international students in English academic writing through a cultural perspective.

Series Description

This workshop series is designed to help educators explore cultural influence in academic writing, critical thinking, and academic integrity which are topics international students identified as the most challenging in their studies. Within each session, participants will reflect on critical questions with regard to respective topic, identify teaching strategies to help students overcome associated challenges, and attend a panel Q&A component for further questions, resources, and conversations.


Registration open through Thursday, October 21, 2021
