Young adults understand the importance of academic integrity at a workshop

Students of Apeejay School International, South Delhi, along with their parents, attended the informational session



Honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, and courage are some of the fundamental values that entail academic integrity. Technological advancement, despite its many advantages, comes with the risk of plagiarism and inauthenticity, making it difficult for students sometimes to commit to these values.

To help students understand the importance of these values, Apeejay International School, South Delhi, recently organised a workshop on ‘Academic Integrity in the Digital Age’ for Diploma Programme (DP)- I students and their parents.

The session began with an introduction to academic integrity, its importance, and the consequences a person may face if the content they write is found to be plagiarised.

At the workshop, the parents and students got the opportunity to get a hands-on learning experience by participating in an activity—they were asked to team up and create a recipe.

There was a quiz session in which students and their parents participated enthusiastically and exhibited their knowledge by scoring well. Overall, the workshop was a great learning experience for young minds.

On the session, Aryan from DP-I said, “The workshop was informational as we understood all the things that need to be taken care of while submitting the work. Most of all, I learned how extended essays and IA’s will be implemented with academic integrity.”

Another student, Atharv from DP-I said, “It was a very insightful session for me as I learned about Academic Integrity and its consequences.” Priyanka from DP-I expressed, “In the workshop, we learned about plagiarism and how important it is to cite other’s works.”

Meanwhile, Vedha from DP-I said, “We learnt how to practice academic integrity when submitting our work in IBO.” Moulvika from DP-I said, “In the workshop, I learned how I can write about my work ethically and be responsible for it.”

Molvika’s mother Aparna Khanna added, “It was a very good workshop as students came to know about academic integrity and the parameters of writing content. I as a parent was not aware of the rules but now, I’ll be able to check up on my daughter to know whether she is submitting original work or not.”

At the end of the session, parents, students, and teachers had tea and refreshments and discussed the insights of the workshop.
