Academic Integrity Tutorial: Learning Objectives

Behavioural Ethics

The Introduction to Behavioural Ethics video suggests that most people who say they are ethical also admit to doing questionable/unethical things. Can you think of a time you have bent the rules or done something unethical? What were the organizational or social pressures that influenced your behaviour?  Do these pressures influence your academic conduct and how diligent are you at guarding against these pressures?
