Rethinking the Teaching of Academic Integrity and Ethics in the Post-pandemic Era

Our UGC-supported, cross-institutional project has ascertained the effectiveness of using mobile learning paths called ‘Trails of Integrity and Ethics’ (TIEs) to help students learn abstract concepts of academic integrity and ethics (AIE). The TIEs deploy the latest advances in augmented reality (AR), coupled with mobile technology, to bring scenarios of AIE to real-life situations for students who will then be immersed in collaborative problem solving tasks centred on ethical dilemmas. Responding to the campus lockdown caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, we adapted our physical TIEs for online deployment, signifying that learning AIE lessons transcended the mode of delivery.

Looking beyond the pandemic, we have to rethink the teaching of AIE. With assessments, including examinations, taking place off-campus in students’ own environments, where they are isolated from others physically, but still connected to the world through social media and the internet, the TIEs may enact different scenarios. In academia, we have the responsibility to help students face such moral dilemmas and make the correct decisions through recognising that cheating only results in lack of learning for themselves.
