Academic Integrity Day: Keynote Talk at USF

  • Title: Creating a Classroom of Integrity: A Proactive Response to Cheating
  • Speaker: Tricia Bertram Gallant, Ph.D., University of California, San Diego
  • Date: October 7, 2015
  • Time: 12:30 – 2:00 PM
  • Location: McLaren 250

The role of educators is not to eliminate cheating but to help develop ethical citizens and professionals. In this keynote, Tricia Bertram Gallant will introduce faculty to the idea that they can do this by creating the ethical classroom and responding to integrity violations when they occur. By the end of the keynote, participants will have new strategies to realize this idea as well as to enhance teaching and learning, strategies that, once put into practice, will make cheating the exception and integrity the norm.

Dr. Bertram Gallant is an internationally known expert on integrity and ethics in education, having authored or edited numerous publications as well as consulted with high schools, colleges and universities in the U.S., Egypt, Australia, and England. She is the author of “Academic Integrity in the Twenty-First Century” (Jossey-Bass, 2008), co-author of “Cheating in School” (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009), and serves on the Advisory Council of the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI). She works with students, faculty, and staff to create environments in which cheating is the exception and integrity is the norm.

Sponsored by the Office of Student Life, the Office of Student Conduct, Rights and Responsibilities (OSCRR), and the Academic Integrity Committee.
