The Library is pleased to announce a new module about academic integrity available in Canvas Commons for CatCourses. The module empowers students put together the four pieces of academic integrity – the scholarly conversation, academic honesty, attribution & citation, and copyright & fair use – to reflect and make connections to their own lives. The module supports students in understanding their responsibilities in being part of a research university. It includes a final assessment that can be graded. The module, licensed under a CC BY-NC-SA 4.0, was adapted from a module that Librarian, Bronwen Maxson, helped develop, and tailored for the needs of UC Merced in collaboration with Librarian, Olivia Olivares, the Teaching Commons, and in consultation with the Office of Student Rights and Responsibilities.

The Library’s module was designed as a student onboarding module for Spark courses to enrich the first-year experience at UC Merced. To locate this module, log in to Canvas Commons via CatCourses and search for "Bobcats Live With Academic Integrity: Academic Conduct at UC Merced," from there you can download or import the module. Interested Spark instructors can reach the Teaching Commons for more information and for assistance embedding the module into a CatCourses site.
