We invite faculty, staff, and students to join us for this informal and informative conversation about academic integrity and technology use in the classroom. In this workshop, students and faculty will explore common expectations when it comes to integrity and technology use on the college campus in the 21st century. Find out from students themselves what’s working and what’s not when it comes to this crucial topic. In turn, faculty will be able to share what they expect from students. We’ll have a FREE lunch for everyone!
