The Nursing Unit and the Education Unit of ATINER organize a Stream on “Academic Dishonesty Within Nursing Education: Current Issues and Future Implications” as part of the 4thAnnual International Conference on Nursing, 7-10 May 2018, Athens, Greece sponsored by the Athens Journal of Health.
Academic dishonesty within post-secondary education is not program specific but rather a phenomenon that is occurring within all areas of study. This stream will explore the current issues facing post-secondary education in relation to academic integrity including but not limited to barriers to reporting for educators; institutional policies; cultural aspects; the growing use of technology and innovative “cheating” methods; and the effects academic dishonesty has upon higher learning for students and educators alike. It has been identified that academic integrity is guided by the student’s personal moral and ethical beliefs both in and out of the classroom environment. One can assume then that the moral framework one creates during their post-secondary academic experience will also continue to guide their behavior within their professional practice. As nursing professionals and educators discussion will occur around future implications of this growing trend of academic dishonesty and its implications for professional nursing practice. Most disciplines would benefit from this stream, as academic dishonesty is a growing issue among all areas of study and disciplines within post secondary education.
You may participate as presenter of one paper, chair or/and organizer of a session, or observer.
Special arrangements will be made with a local hotel for a limited number of rooms at a special conference rate. In addition, a number of special events will be organized: A pragmatic symposium (as organized in Ancient Athens but fine tuned to synchronous ethics), a special one-day educational island tour, a Mycanae and island of Poros visit, an Athens educational walking tour, an one-day visit to Delphi and an ancient Corinth and Cape Sounion visit. Details of the social program are available here.
