What is Academic Integrity (video)

Academic Integrity Week - October

Academic Integrity Week (October 15 - 18, 2019) highlights people, events, and workshops that support you in your ethical learning journey.  

As a member of the SFU community, this is your opportunity to receive the information, support, and encouragement to take control of your learning. Stop by at a pop-up table in your area and attend one of the Student Learning Commons workshops this week. You can become a better writer, lower your stress, save time, and improve your research skills and knowledge with the right tools.

Citing Your Sources: What, Why, and How? (for undergraduate students)
Tuesday, October 15, 1:30-2:20
Burnaby, Bennett Library, Lab 4009

Whether you're using APA, MLA or another style, clearly and accurately citing your sources is a key skill for academic research and writing assignments. Join us for this workshop to learn more about: why learning to cite well is a skill worth learning; how to save time by seeing past all the strange details and using the similar patterns of all citations; and where you can get help at the library (and beyond!) with citing your sources.

Cite Your sources with Zotero (for graduate students)
Wednesday, October 16, 2:00-3:00
Surrey campus

Want to make your research and writing more efficient? Hate the last minute rush of trying to create a correctly formatted bibliography? This workshop is for you! We will introduce Zotero, a citation management tool that can help you import, organize, share, and manage your citations and documents, as well as create correctly formatted in-text citations and bibliographies in almost any style -- in seconds.

Reading for Writing, Presentation, or Discussion
Wednesday, October 16, 10:30-11:30
Burnaby, Bennett Library Rm 7200

To prepare for a paper, presentation or class discussion, you need to strike a good balance between using your sources with academic integrity, and expressing your own perspective based on those sources. Reading strategies, therefore, need to be very different that when you are reading to prepare for a test.  Come to this workshop to learn how to read effectively with this purpose in mind.

Ethical Source Integration
Wednesday, October 16, 11:30-12:20
Burnaby, Bennett Library Rm 7200

Come learn how to ethically summarize, quote, and paraphrase from your sources. Sure, this workshop will help you to avoid plagiarism, but more importantly, it will also help you to deepen your understanding of your source materials, and demonstrate that understanding in your own writing. 

Preparing for Exams with Integrity
Thursday, October 17, 10:30-11:20
Burnaby, Bennett Library Rm 7200

Are you feeling overwhelmed by having to prepare for multiple exams? Have you ever been tempted to look at another student’s work or take a "short cut"? This workshop focuses on helping you manage your study load with integrity. Come learn tips on how to prepare for exams so that you feel confident and ready.

Don’t Plagiarize: Understanding how to paraphrase (for graduate students)
Thursday, October 17, 2:30-3:20
Burnaby, Bennett Library Rm 7200

Learning how to skillfully use our own words to accurately describe other scholars’ ideas remains a challenging process for many graduate students, and understandably so. While practicing and improving paraphrasing is guaranteed to level-up your writing, doing so without plagiarizing can and should be an ongoing concern. Come to this workshop to learn more about that foreboding beast "plagiarism," and its lesser known version "patch writing," so that you are better equipped to avoid it in your own work.
