DCU Teaching Enhancement Unit (TEU) is currently participating in the INTEGRITY project, funded under the KA2 strand, and aimed at enhancing the quality of teaching and learning processes that are based on the principles of academic integrity, supported by policies, mechanisms and tools that help prevent and detect cases of plagiarism in higher education institutions in Georgia. INTEGRITY (Academic Integrity for Quality Teaching and Learning in Higher Education Institutions in Georgia) involves collaboration with colleagues in partner institutions in Ilia State University (Georgia), University of Roehampton (UK), Uppsala Universitet (Sweden) and Universitaet Wien (Austria) as well as a range of associated HEIs in Georgia.
The TEU is involved in developing a resource toolkit for academics which will support them in designing assessments which actively encourages academic integrity. The suite of resources currently being advanced for the toolkit includes a literature review publication; a set of twelve principles and related explanations; interactive glossary; self and team checklists; animated scenarios; VLE instructional resource; and a collection of case studies. Members of the TEU piloted and advanced these resources at faculty development events in Universitaet Wien (Vienna) in February 2018; Akaki Tsereteli State University (Kutaisi, Georgia) in May 2018; and Shota Meskhia State Teaching University of Zugdidi in September 2018.
