What do Plagiarizing Panda and Resubmitting Racoon have to do with health? Research shows that stress can be a contributor to the growing levels of academic misconduct in postsecondary (Lynch, J., Everett, B., Ramjan, L., Calins, R., Glew, P. & Salamonson, Y., 2017; Wideman, M., 2011; Kisamore, J., Stone, T., Jawahar, I.M., 2007). At this university, a new campaign, AIM – Academic Integrity Matters, aligns common elements of misconduct with information, resources, and strategies - using humour - to increase awareness and understanding. And it is working. Students are paying attention. The purpose of the campaign is to engage students in integrity issues without inciting fear. It is to connect them to the information and to the Academic Success Centre where multiple levels of support are available including academic integrity mentors. In this session, participants will be introduced to the range of playful characters in the AIM campaign and how they are being used to support students’ learning. They will participate in some of the activities students complete as part of their learning – and yes – there’s a test (to be completed honestly!)
