Second Academic Integrity Week Kicks Off Today
Activities to Provide Tools, Tips for Student Success at All Levels
Sept. 14, 2009
The week-long series was developed to teach and promote stronger writing skills, as well as to aid in developing positive, confident approaches to academic success.
Planned activities include a panel, “What do Professors Look for in Your Assignments?,” which will be led by UT Dallas faculty.
“The panelists for that particular discussion include representatives from upper level courses and from a variety of disciplines,” said Susan McKee, a judicial affairs officer at the University. “Their comments will be applicable to students at every level of study, not just those in their first year.”
Another event, Gold Medal Time Management, will offer tools and techniques for quickly and effectively gaining control over time constraints.
“Functional alignment and the prioritizing of time commitments remain an essential ingredient to academic success,” McKee added.
