Academic Integrity Tutorials for Students


The Library's Academic Integrity Tutorials


The tutorials are in alignment with the DiMenna-Nyselius Library’s commitment to educating Fairfield students in the following ways: 1) It emphasizes the importance of academic integrity as critical to membership in our Jesuit community, 2) it fosters mindsets that fully participate in scholarly conversation by engaging sources effectively and ethically, and 3) it supports the development of skills needed to avoid plagiarism.

The Library currently has four versions of the academic integrity tutorial:Stag with Integrity

  1. Academic Integrity Tutorial for FYE Students - embedded in Blackboard for all FYE students.

  2. Academic Integrity Tutorial for Undergraduates – includes a post tutorial quiz with results sent to professor

  3. Academic Integrity Tutorial for ESL Students - embedded in Blackboard for all ESL Engineering students

  4. Academic Integrity Tutorial for Graduate Studentsincludes a post tutorial quiz with results sent to professor.

In support of the University’s academic integrity learning outcomes for all students, librarians created an open source, flexible and innovative academic integrity online tutorial.

This project represents a total redesign of the previous plagiarism avoidance tutorial, given in the past to students in the FYE program and ESL Engineering classes. This new academic integrity tutorial goes beyond avoiding plagiarism, focusing more on academic honesty and integrity as fundamental to, and an inherent part of, a Jesuit education, in which teaching and learning are based on mutual respect.
