Campus-wide partnerships to improve students’ academic integrity iQ
MetadataShow full item record
Miami University’s iQ (short for integrity Quickstart) is a newly created online tutorial that guides students through different scenarios about academic integrity and research issues. Each scenario introduces the student to a new topic with animated Flash video, additional resources and short quizzes to assess their understanding. iQ was created through a partnership between the Libraries, University IT and Student Affairs. Instructional designers from IT helped us to transform the content into short video-based snippets. The presentation tools from Prezi.com give iQ its visually appealing, non-linear structure. Additionally, staff from Student Affairs help us to tailor the content on academic integrity and consequences for violation. Numerous challenges were encountered to ensure that the end product was something exemplary of Miami’s commitment to these topics. This poster will cover the creation and implementation of iQ at Miami University. We will discuss how iQ works as both a standalone learning tool and as part of a bibliographic information session and how campus partnerships can help foster institutional buy-in for academic integrity and information literacy.
