The Integrity website hosts resources aimed at helping students understand what academic integrity is and how to gain the skills needed to reference and approach your assignments with confidence. It is part of a package of resources to help you develop the skills you need to study successfully.
A suite of online tutorials has been developed by staff at the Adademic Support Office and involving staff and students from across campus. The tutorials cover critical thinking, managing your reading, referencing the discussion and academic writing. The referencing tutorial explores the reasons why we reference and how we can reference with confidence using different referencing styles. It has video, activities, quizzes and downloads. The four aims of the tutorial are to help you to understand why, when and how to reference your assignments, and also to do so with style. The tutorials can be accessed by all students and academic staff from their Yorkshare (VLE) home page.
All students are required to successfully complete the online academic integrity tutorial, held in Yorkshare VLE. You should complete the tutorial as early into your studies as possible. Please login to your Yorkshare account Yorkshare account where you will see a link to the tutorial in the left hand navigation.
All students have access to Turnitin text matching software to help develop writing skills and the integration of source material into assignments. Some departments will organise workshops for their students or you can sign up to attend one of the weekly open workshops in which you will learn what Turnitin is and how it can be used. It is best to attend a workshop once you have an assignment to write and have begun drafting your paper. To sign up for a workshop please login to your Yorkshare account where you will see a box detailing forthcoming workshops that you can sign up to.
