Ignite Integrity - Spring e-Camp
Academic Integrity is the foundation on which all of academia stands. It is in the school/university environment such as classrooms, corridors and canteens that students, our future citizens of the world, gather an understanding of what is right and what is wrong, what is meant by integrity, being truthful, responsible, and respectful. This is where they develop life skills of honesty and fairness that prepare them for the real world, and as members of the greater community, learn how to practice these skills in their everyday lives and at work places as future leaders and policy makers.
It then becomes crucial to begin the dialogue with students at all levels of education, not just high school or tertiary education. Research has shown significant drop in misconduct cases among students as the efforts to develop a culture of integrity increases.
Therefore, ensuring and upholding integrity in education provides for a sustainable, constructive future, a platform that fosters, encourages and celebrates innovation and makes for happy individuals, happy work places and happy society. I2 is first such an initiative towards providing that platform for students in the UAE.
