Every member of the Seneca community is expected to practice and incorporate the six fundamental values of academic integrity in all aspects of their academic career:
honesty • trust • fairness • respect • responsibility • courage
As an educator, you play an important role in modeling and promoting academic integrity values for your students. One way of ensuring that your students understand the expectations at Seneca is to embed plagiarism & citation tutorials and/or packages specific to Academic Integrity in your courses.
Visit the Academic Integrity at Seneca for Faculty website for more resources.
One way of ensuring students are aware of citation guidelines is to recommend they attend an online citation workshop.
Visit the Guide to Citing Sources page for the citation workshop schedule.
Seneca Libraries has created packages with library resources for you to embed in your Blackboard courses. Our APA and MLA packages include links to tutorials, instructional videos, and short citation quizzes that are automatically graded in Grade Centre. If you decide on assigning a grade for the tutorial, students' progress will be automatically tracked in Grade Centre.
