International Students' Perceptions of Academic Integrity

Thursday 30 November 2017, 12.45PM – 01.45PM Rom 0A11, Ground Floor, Georgetown University - Qatar, Education City, Al Luqta St, Ar-Rayyan, Qatar

Understanding the academic integrity framework in higher education can be challenging for any student, but facing unfamiliar expectations in a new culture may provide an additional level of difficulty. This talk presents the findings of a qualitative study exploring international students’ perceptions of academic integrity, including how they define and engage with it in an American context. All participants were graduate students pursuing a degree in the US for the first time, and non-native speakers of English. Interview questions focused on how participants learned about academic integrity and how their views changed with time and experience. Key findings relate to plagiarism, citation, and cultural adaptation.
