Balancing Innovation and Integrity: embedding the ethical use gen-AI in course design

Learning Enhancement and Innovation team, The University of Adelaide.

Background: Institutions have defined principles for gen-AI use through the lens of student academic integrity. Yet, there is a lack of clarity around ethical and best practice use for course design and development. The rapid growth of freely available gen-AI tools necessitates ethical and best-practice guidelines.
Aim: To develop a set of best-practice guidelines to ensure responsible use of gen-AI tools and establish consistent standards across the institution.
What was done and why: Third-space professionals applied ethical best-practice principles to use cases for gen-AI in course design and development. The guidelines were flexible, practical, not temporal–they need to apply to any current and future tools. They identified practical processes where or how gen-AI use might be appropriate in course development workflows.
Recommendations and Findings: A set of overarching principles were developed for gen-AI use in course design and development. Alongside the principles, a practical guide was developed for staff to understand how to best apply these principles within their own contexts. This guide enables staff to identify when and where work could be enhanced or made more efficient through the use of gen-AI, in line with best practice principles. These guidelines also help identify what gaps in policy or practice may exist so they can be addressed.

Discussion starters:
  • In your department or institution, how are staff supported to identify appropriate ways in which to implement, or in some cases, not to implement gen-AI into their course design and development workflows?
  • In your department or institution, do you feel that staff have clear pathways for knowledge sharing around the best practice use of gen-AI?
  • In your department or institution, do you feel that staff have clear pathways for reporting misuse of gen-AI within course design and development?

A Unique Collegiate University Model for support and accountability in Academic Integrity

Dr Carolyn Alsen
Learning and Teaching Manager, University of Divinity

In the collegiate system of the University of Divinity, models of strategic governance and organisational are being implemented by Academic Board to create simplicity, transparency, a student focus and assurance of justice for staff, students and candidates alike. The models use hub and spoke metaphors, for the University entities to work both objectively and interdependently to share responsibility for the workload, and to create a community of practice. The poster will firstly explain the unique collegiate model at the University, then describe the operation of an Academic Integrity Hub which creates an independent, consistent, confidential and yet collegial approach to the support of students and candidates. Finally, the goal of the Hub is described as providing educational advice, advice on investigation of incidents, and monitoring trends in the institution and in the sector in academic integrity for Academic Board.
Discussion starters:
  • What are the emerging organisational models for strategic monitoring and maintenance of academic integrity in Universities?

Assessment support strategies to minimise academic integrity breaches, while increasing student pass rates and reducing attrition

Rosemary Ayoub
Head Teacher Bachelor of Education (Birth to Five)

Student assessment support classes were used as the main strategy to increase the overall pass rates for students in the Bachelor of Education Early Childhood (Birth to Five) degree. These classes were offered for 1st year students and  timetabled in between lectures and tutorials  staffed by academic and literacy support staff. They were used as a strategy to monitor student attendance, submission, and literacy levels. Targeted support was provided based on initial literacy screening. The academic checked-in with each student about the progress of assessments and provided acceptable support. Additionally, it gave an opportunity for the academic to monitor ongoing work student’s ongoing work on an assessment and have the assurance of the final submission as student’s own work. The results achieved included a 19% increase in the pass rate and a 20% reduction in attrition. The occurrence of academic integrity breaches reduced by 50%. The sessions were also used to discuss appropriate uses of AI to support learning and to regularly remind students of the inappropriate uses of AI.

Discussion starters:
  • What types of academic support do you provide for students?
  • What guidance do your academics give around acceptable use of AI

Fostering Academic Integrity through Peer Mentoring Programs: An Examination of On-Campus ‘Influencers’ and ‘Intervenors’ at Griffith College

Inez Chai
Student Success and Retention Co-ordinator, Griffith College
Karen McRae, Manager Academic Education, Navitas Pty Ltd
This roundtable discussion critically examines the impact of Griffith College’s peer mentoring programs, namely Peer Assisted Learning (PAL) and Mates, on academic integrity. These programs are designed to cultivate a supportive atmosphere, instil a sense of responsibility in students, and develop essential work-ready skills. Empirical evidence indicates that learning environments fostering a strong sense of belonging are associated with a reduction in academic misconduct (Fudge et. al., 2022).

The primary focus of this discussion centres on the innovative Mates program, which engages students in the Student Liaison Committee (SLC), and functions as a feedback mechanism, facilitating continuous improvement in enhancing academic integrity throughout the campus, whilst serving as a vital connection point with students. Insights gained from interviews with mentors reveal that students in leadership positions acting as role models exhibit a heightened sense of responsibility towards academic integrity, which permeates through their peers, with Mates acting as influencers and PALs as intervenors.

Thus far, research findings underscore the pivotal role of student partnership and peer mentoring programs in fostering academic integrity among students. Attendees will gain invaluable insights on the transformative potential of peer influence and mentorship, and its positive influence on student behaviour and attitudes towards academic integrity.

Discussion starters:
  • How can institutions further enhance peer mentoring programs to maximise their impact on academic integrity?
  • Are there any challenges in implementing such programs, and how can they be overcome?
  • What other strategies can be combined with student partnership and peer mentoring to create a more comprehensive approach to promoting academic integrity on campus?
