- ItemOpen AccessA rapid scoping review on academic integrity and algorithmic writing technologies(2023-09-28) Moya, Beatriz Antonieta; Eaton, Sarah ElaineEnglish: New Artificial Intelligence (AI) advances challenge traditional practices in higher education institutions. To contribute to sustaining cultures of academic integrity, we developed a rapid scoping review on academic integrity and AI. This review follows the guidance of the updated Joanna Briggs Institute manual and the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews Meta-Analysis for Scoping Reviews (PRISMA-ScR). We investigated five databases, and the selection criteria include that they have been written in English and the involvement of different educational actors in initiatives around AI in the context of academic integrity from 2007 to November 2022. The 14 Selected studies present perspectives on the ethical implications of AI, the use of AI for cheating, its legitimate use, as well as a view from equity, diversity, and inclusion. Spanish: Los avances de la Inteligencia Artificial (IA) desafían las prácticas tradicionales en instituciones de educación superior. Para contribuir a la tarea de sustentar culturas de integridad académica, desarrollamos una revisión de alcance rápida sobre la integridad académica y la IA. Esta revisión sigue las indicaciones del manual actualizado del Instituto Joanna Briggs y del Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic reviews Meta-Analysis para revisiones de alcance (PRISMA-ScR). Investigamos cinco bases de datos y los criterios de selección incluyen el que hayan sido escritas en inglés y el involucramiento de distintos actores educativos en iniciativas en torno a la IA en el contexto de la integridad académica desde el año 2007 hasta noviembre de 2022. Los 14 estudios seleccionados presentan perspectivas sobre las implicancias éticas de la IA, el uso de la IA para la trampa, su uso legítimo, como también una mirada desde la equidad, la diversidad y la inclusión.
- ItemOpen AccessAcademic Integrity Lessons: Practical Ideas for Teaching, Learning, and Assessment(University of Calgary, 2023-10-12) Eaton, Sarah Elaine; Kumar, RahulPurpose: The purpose of this Open Educational Resource (OER) is to offer comprehensive lesson plans that focus on instilling skills and values related to academic integrity. The intended audience for this work is educators at elementary, secondary, and higher education levels. Methods: Contributors were invited to contribute lesson plans with a positive orientation to academic integrity, focusing on building skills and competencies, rather than focusing on consequences for committing academic misconduct. To maintain consistency and clarity, every lesson plan adheres to a standardized format. This format helps identify whether the target audience is elementary and secondary, higher education, or a combination of multiple educational levels. All lesson plans underwent open peer review by the editors and some included additional review by contributors to this edited collection. Results: This OER contains twenty-four (24) open-access lesson plans contributed by authors across four countries: Canada, the UK, Finland, and Qatar. There are five lessons specific to elementary or secondary levels, 13 for use in higher education, and another five which can be used or adapted at elementary, secondary or higher education levels.

- ItemOpen AccessHow can I teach English with algorithmic writing technologies ethically?(2023-10-04) Moya, Beatriz AntonietaIn this workshop, English teachers from the Araucanía Region, Chile, will discuss GenAI and how it has impacted the educational landscape worldwide in the last months. These teachers will also explore ChatGPT's capabilities and limitations and participate in a Turing test to distinguish AI and human-generated text. Since an understanding of the ethical use of GenAI is still expanding, participants will also analyze some emerging recommendations from the literature to use GenAI for ethical teaching and learning in the English Language Classroom. At the end of the workshop, the English teachers in the workshop will prompt ChatGPT and explore some ethical ways to use it to help their teaching.
- ItemOpen AccessExploring the Impact of YouthLink Calgary’s Crime Prevention Program on Youth(2023) Thomas, Christy; White, Christina; Dewar, Adriana; Brown, BarbaraTraditional methods of crime prevention have proven to be ineffective in reducing the occurrence of crime, especially among youth. Early intervention and educational crime prevention programs are recognized as more efficient forms of mediation than remedial or compensatory forms of reducing crime (Winterdyk, 2013). Community-based programs encourage youth to make positive life choices and increase the prospects of high-risk adolescents avoiding the criminal justice system all together (Vallee, 2010). The Calgary Police Interpretive Center, YouthLink program, focuses on crime prevention by empowering youth to make positive life choices, thus avoiding crime and the risk of being victimized. Crime-based prevention programs have struggled to provide evidence-based measures of their success through research. Through a partnership between the University of Calgary and the YouthLink Calgary this research study was developed to explore the impact of their one-day and week-long crime prevention programming on youth. The research design focuses on the short term impacts these programs have on youth participants, both from the perspective of the students and their teachers. A mixed methods approach was used in this study to collect and analyze both qualitative (open-ended survey questions) and quantitative (survey) data. Data was collected immediately after the completion of the program and again three months later. Findings showed students were comfortable and open to learning while attending the program. Pedagogical approaches such as authentic experiences and hands on investigative activities were helping students learn. Students were also applying what they are learning after attending and recalling messaging and strategies learned before making decisions. Findings also showed students were making safe decisions when faced with crime related pressures and challenges and were using tools and strategies they learned during the program. These findings highlight the short-term impacts of the YouthLink Calgary’s crime prevention and youth education program. This study has implications for crime-prevention programming and may be of interest to others engaged in developing or evaluating community based and crime prevent programs for youth.
- ItemOpen AccessUsing GenAI applications with integrity: Guidelines for ethical teaching and learning(2023-08-23) Morrow, Leeanne; Moya, Beatriz AntonietaGenerative Artificial Intelligence (GenAI) caught educators worldwide by surprise. Adequate guidance for teaching, learning, and assessment practices with GenAI from expert individuals and organizations is emerging; at the same time, understanding the ethical implications of AI is now an urgent matter with no definite answer. To contribute to the scholarly and practitioner-oriented dialogues in this area, this workshop invites participants to discuss GenAI and its capabilities and limitations. Participants will also identify some ethical uses of GenAI for teaching, learning and assessment. This workshop will also address academic integrity concerns as part of GenAI use and examine the information literacy, digital literacy, and critical thinking skills that could be essential for students in an AI world. Participants will also have opportunities to interact with GenAI tools through a Turing test experience and a teaching and learning artifact activity.
