Academic Integrity and Ethics Training Series

October 5-9, 2020

In our ongoing support to help graduate students fulfill their Academic Integrity and Ethics Training Requirements, the Faculty of Graduate Studies and Research is pleased to present an Academic Integrity and Ethics Training Series Oct. 5-9, 2020.

This series covers some of the integral parts to being a graduate student -- what you need to know to complete your thesis correctly, pursue your research ethically and conduct yourself accordingly.  

Be sure to contact your department BEFORE registering. Your department may be using other courses or workshops to meet the Academic Integrity and Ethics Training Requirement.

 

Virtual Workshops

Virtual workshops combine asynchronous and synchronous learning that provides you flexibility and the opportunity for face-to-face learning. How it works: 

  • Complete independent pre-workshop activities in advance
  • Attend remote delivery workshops through Zoom
    • Completion of both activities is required for Academic Integrity and Ethics Training Requirement Credit
    • Seat time is reduced in lieu of the your pre-workshop preparation
