Description of Proposal

As Graduate Services Coordinator at the Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT), the presenter was asked to provide instruction on academic integrity to all new graduate students during New Student Orientation and to new graduate teaching assistants during their training program. For the orientation and training programs held in the Fall Semester of 2019, the RIT Office of Graduate Education placed a greater emphasis on academic integrity content and less emphasis on information about library resources and services. This presentation will focus on the evolving role of the librarian as academic integrity instructor at RIT, review and assess feedback from graduate students who received academic integrity instruction, and discuss some lessons learned in practice.

What takeaways will attendees learn from your session?

Attendees of this presentation will learn about recent efforts to provide introductory academic integrity lessons to incoming graduate students and graduate TAs. Attendees will discover which academic integrity resources graduate TAs found useful to them, based on a small-scale survey, and will consider the practical implications of quickly and efficiently delivering valuable academic integrity lessons to ~1000 incoming graduate students
