Academic Integrity and Ethics: The Influence of Culture and Prior Academic Background
Kwong, Theresa; Hafiz, Muhammad; Lau, Peter; Chan, Isaac
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching, v29 3-4 p53-72 2018
Differences in cultural background and prior academic background significantly affect the perception of academic integrity and ethics (AIE) among university students. While upholding the highest standards of AIE is crucial both academically and professionally, such abstract concepts are difficult to teach in the traditional classroom. With mobile technology coupled with augmented reality, these concepts can be taught in an innovative way with practical scenarios. By analyzing clickstream results, it is possible to explore how students' cultural backgrounds or prior learning experiences may influence their approaches to ethical decisions. The text mining of students' discussions about their understanding of AIE, before and after the learning trail, have shown rather different results from past iterations.
