Faculty at two large public universities have had extensive experience in student academic integrity violations in the introductory material and energy balance class. Scenario-based academic integrity videos developed by the authors ten years ago were effective for a time; however, they did not address changes in technology or on-line resources that have more recently become available and widely used. Moreover, the scenario-based videos were limited in scope to a single course in a single engineering discipline which restricted their overall utility across the curriculum. Recent observations by the authors and input from current undergraduate student identified new scenarios that needed to be addressed, including cheating in laboratory courses, cheating in project-based courses, and cheating on exams. Student Conduct professionals further offered suggestions on the commentary provided by the video’s narrator to establish context for the scenarios. This work in progress presents the updated set of videos, which are publicly available, that include examples of both prohibited behavior and encouraged behavior for individual assignments. All scenarios now reference examples in calculus, chemistry, and physics course to make them more widely applicable across a broader range of science and engineering disciplines. The authors offer suggestions on how to utilize the videos along with additional academic integrity-related resources, such as syllabus language, a reflection assignment, an assignment cover sheet, and a form prohibiting sharing course-related documents.
