Academic Integrity at the University – a new course on VUM online

Recently, a new course “Academic Integrity at the University” was launched on VUM Online.

Academic Integrity is a foundation of a high-quality education.    Higher Education in Ukraine is transforming and developing gradually. Implementation of the academic integrity principles in studying, teaching and science is a key element of higher education development.    We developed an online course about the Academic Integrity to let the students, lectors, scientists, managers, and directors of higher education institutions implement its principles in practice.    The course describes the following issues:

  • What is academic integrity?
  • What is plagiarism?
  • How to avoid plagiarism in academic writing?
  • What are the preconditions of creating an area of academic integrity?
  • How to create an area of academic integrity in the university?

The course is open for everyone.
