Two degrees of separation: Student Success & Programmatic Approaches

Martin McMorrow
Learning Co-ordinator, The University of Notre Dame
The Student Success unit identified the need for discipline integrated approaches to educate students in developing academic skills to uphold academic integrity. In response a short video format was developed, designed to be embedded in the learning management system (LMS) with assessment and course specificity. This example takes students through a step-by-step approach to note-taking and summary writing drawing on texts and topics similar to those students will need to draw on in their assessment. The format has proven to be a good base model that can and has been readily adapted to different disciplines and writing genres.
Discussion starters:
  • Does this ‘two degrees of separation’ approach provide clarity for students and support the skills required in their assessments?
  • Is it an effective way of helping first-year students to respect academic integrity in their writing?
  • How can its effectiveness be measured?
