Academic Integrity as a Public Good

Academic integrity is crucial not only for safeguarding the integrity of knowledge creation and dissemination, but also for establishing the public trust that society needs to operate.

The theme of the 8th Asia Pacific Conference on Educational Integrity – Academic Integrity as a Public Good – emphasises academic integrity as a society-wide issue with a strong influence on ethical practices within disciplines, professions, industry and business, government and public institutions. Accordingly, the conference program is being developed to initiate a wide-ranging conversation about the importance of academic integrity from multiple perspectives from within and without the academy and higher education institutions. Importantly, this includes the perspective of students themselves.

This conference will be of interest to academic language and learning educators, academic developers, students, faculty academics, professional staff, and policy developers and implementers.

Asia Pacific Forum on Educational Integrity

The Asia Pacific Forum on Educational Integrity (APFEI) is a multi-institutional, cross-disciplinary and non-profit organisation that fosters research and collaboration on issues relating to educational and academic integrity. Currently based in Australia, APFEI aims to provide a platform for the discussion, investigation and promotion of ethical research and writing practices by students, teaching staff, educational and learning developers, librarians, academic misconduct officers and policy professionals. Overall, APFEI is dedicated to the promotion of education about academic integrity as well as the more effective minimisation and management of academic misconduct.
