This 10-minute asynchronous presentation will describe how designated tutoring sessions to support students learning academic integrity skills have been incorporated into the tutoring service, both with subject tutoring and writing tutoring.
The three sessions are directly booked by students, often referred to the Learning Centre by instructors and deans: Understanding and Awareness, Using Sources in Your Writing, Style and Formatting Guidelines.
In these appointments, students build on previous understanding of academic integrity, learn about resources available, develop plans to continue their learning. Writing appointments also aid students to focus on developing paraphrasing skills and ability to use sources as evidence in writing assignments, how to find the formatting and style rules needed for assignments, as well as what aspects of the style and formatting are important in most college assignments.
