💙 Debate Night Recap 💙

It was an awesome experience hosting our first ever “Debate Night On: Academic Integrity” on March 7th. The turnout and enthusiasm of the students who participate really blew us away. From the start of “The Academic Integrity Project” in August when we were just an idea on a piece of paper. To then have two well-accomplished professors from either side of the country take time out of their busy schedules, help moderate our debate and share the same intrigue on academic integrity was fantastic!

For those that missed the debate here are the Top 5 Quotes From the Night.

  • 1️⃣ “Students feel pressure to take shortcuts.”
  • 2️⃣ “I definitely think mental health challenges are the root cause of a lot of instances of academic dishonestly.”
  • 3️⃣ “The student vs instructors mentality is dangerous.”
  • 4️⃣ “The rules don’t change the adherence to the rules changed”
  • 5️⃣ “There isn’t enough research on academic integrity and mental health in Canada.”

We would like to send a special thank you to both Dr. Kathleen Fortune & Dr. Sarah Eaton who took time out of their day to help us. We Are Forever Grateful 💙
