Teaching and Academic Integrity

Academic Integrity at UTSC:  How CTL Supports Instructors 
 
CTL believes that for students to gain deep knowledge of academic integrity and related skills, they need to be exposed to this material throughout courses and entire academic programs, by means of examples, discussion, and activities. Therefore, CTL supports academic integrity across the curriculum at UTSC.
