Academic Integrity means that all Seneca College students will conduct themselves in an honest and trustworthy manner in all aspects of their academic career.
As an educator, you have an important role in modeling academic integrity principles for your students, embedding those practices in your teaching. One way of ensuring students are aware of academic integrity expectations at Seneca College is to embed tutorials and/or packages specific to Academic Integrity in your courses.
Citation of resources is an important part of Academic Integrity, as it engages students in scholarly conversation and prevents plagiarism.
As an educator, you have the responsibility to model best citing practices for your students. Ensure that all of your course resources follow correct citation and styling guidelines (MLA or APA), and that citation expectations are clearly outlined for students in your assignments.
One way of ensuring students are aware of citation guidelines is to embed tutorials and/or packages specific to citing in your courses.
Tutorials are self-directed eLearning resources, which introduce the concepts of academic integrity and citing principles to students. You can go through a tutorial with students during class, share a link to a tutorial, or embed a package with a tutorial in your MySeneca course.

Seneca Libraries has created packages with library resources for you to embed in your MySeneca courses. A package typically includes a link to a research tutorial (or a subject guide or other relevant resource), as well as a short assessment. If you decide on assigning a grade for the tutorial, students' progress will be automatically tracked in the Grade Centre.
