Academic integrity is not just about following rules; it's about upholding the values that underpin a thriving academic community. It's about fostering trust, encouraging ethical behavior, and ensuring that everyone has the opportunity to succeed on their own merits. [1,2]

  • Character Building:
    • Academic integrity instills life values:
      honesty, responsibility, respect
      all are important.

  • Skill Development:

    • Practicing academic integrity fosters:
      critical thinking, problem-solving, and ethical decision-making all are key for academic, professional, and personal growth.

  • Academic Integrity and Chatbots:

    • Chatbots can challenge academic integrity if misused.
      However, correct usage can enhance learning, fostering academic integrity.
      Awareness of proper use and potential risks is essential.

Academic integrity is crucial because it ensures that all students are on a level playing field. It guarantees that the work we produce is our own and that we've gained our knowledge and skills honestly. It's about respecting the intellectual property of others and acknowledging their contributions to our learning." [1]
