Integrity in Secondary Education

Motivation

Integrity in education is not limited to higher education (HE) only. It is a necessity for students at  all levels of education starting from primary education.

Many university teachers expect their students to apply the knowledge and skills of  integrity – such as academic writing or proper referencing etc. They expect the students to be prepared in the secondary schools.

In contrast, secondary school teachers often focus on subject-specific preparation for HE, rather than teaching about academic integrity. Moreover, secondary education in many countries has a national curriculum which has less emphasis on academic integrity. Therefore teachers neither have time nor the materials on how to teach their students integrity.

Therefore, ENAI aims to collaborate  with the secondary education sector and offers it the support to enhance integrity education at schools.

Goal

The goal of the working group is to collaborate with the secondary education sector and provide support (mainly in the forms of consultations, workshops or teaching materials) to enhance integrity in secondary education.

Outputs

The ENAI database of educational materials contains materials targeting at teachers and students from secondary education.
