You are invigilating an exam for a course and notice something suspicious… what should you do? Or…what if you are grading a paper and find some text that matches something online? What is academic integrity, anyway, and how is a TA supposed to foster it? Despite the best intentions, many teaching assistants and students will encounter these dilemmas when navigating course work. In this interactive session, we will grapple with these questions and more, to devise strategies for preventative measures and next steps in these ‘sticky situations’.
