Academic Integrity: We want our students to demonstrate their understanding of a learning outcome. Ultimately a student who plagiarizes is not showing his or her best work or understanding of course material. We value academic rigour and honesty in our teaching and learning community and want our students to strive to achieve their very best. Universities respect our academic integrity and trust that student demonstration of learning is their own and reflected accurately in grades.
Post secondary institutions take this violation very seriously and student discipline includes expulsion from the university. See this page at the University of Alberta http://goo.gl/JmNXOs. Ultimately my goal is to stop this behaviour so that students learn how to confidently present his/her own understanding of learning in this course.
