“In this session we will discuss the rhetoric of cheating, plagiarism, and integrity and share the work of the International Center for Academic Integrity. We’ll look at the legalistic terminology that permeates academic integrity discussions, examine when it is and is not helpful, and suggest some more useful frames for integrity-focused discussions.” Dr. Teddi Fishman is the current Director of the International Center for Academic Integrity.

She is also a practitioner as the Director of the Academic Integrity Office at the University of California, San Diego and member of the International Center for Academic Integrity’s Advisory Council.

Understanding Cheating in Online Courses – Week 2: https://learn.canvas.net/courses/28/
Introduction to Cheating in Online Courses:
What is cheating? Do students do it more online than in traditional face-to-face courses? How do students cheat online and what strategies are instructors and institutions using to minimize it? How can course design and instructor/facilitator behavior impact student attitudes about cheating and academic honesty? What philosophical and psychological factors can inform our thinking about the subject? These are some of the many questions that will be explored in this course.

Support Missions in Africa
CUW Student Kimmy Buck shares her experience on the Togo, West Africa Trip
On January 7th, 2012, Professor Ron Mudge of Concordia University Wisconsin, Pastor Carl Lehenbauer of Trinity Freistadt in Mequon, and 7 of Concordia’s students all embarked on a memorable journey to the heart of the Mission in Dapaong Togo, West Africa. After a short visit in Burkina, they crossed the border into Togo and stayed for a week as honorary guests at the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod Lutheran seminary. There, they met with the seminary director, Dr. Dango, and the professors to discuss the ministry in Togo. Very exciting things are happening at the seminary. The students take classes on church planting and are taking the initiative to form Lutheran congregations across Togo and surrounding countries. A meeting with the National Church board also took place where the topic that was discussed in length was how churches in America can support the seminary’s mission in Togo. The seminary and churches have needs that could benefit from outside support including transportation for Evangelists, books for the classes, and tuition money for the students. It only costs 65 dollars for a young man to attend the seminary for 4 years! However, the most important and most effective support one can offer is prayer. Please join in praying for our brothers in Christ involved with the seminary and the Mission in Togo, West Africa.
Thank you and God’s blessings,
Concordia Bible Institute and Lay Ministry student worker.
