Introduction

The FAITH Conference 2024 is a key multiplier event of the "Facing Academic Integrity Threats (FAITH)" project under the Erasmus+ Cooperation partnerships. This initiative is supported by a consortium of 5 European universities and is funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union and the Turkish National Agency. The conference is hosted by the Centre for Academic Integrity at Canakkale Onsekiz Mart University, which plays a pivotal role in advancing academic integrity across Türkiye and beyond.

About Çanakkale

We are pleased to host our forthcoming FAITH academic integrity conference in Çanakkale, Türkiye. Çanakkale is a vibrant city and an important seaport in Turkey, strategically located at the narrowest point of the Dardanelles Strait, which links the Aegean Sea to the Sea of Marmara. It serves as a crucial point of both transit and control between the European and Asian sides of Turkey. The city is steeped in history, most notably for its proximity to the ancient city of Troy and its significant role during the Gallipoli campaign in World War I.

  • Academic Integrity Policies: Innovations in national and institutional policies.
  • Pedagogical Approaches to Academic Integrity: Effective teaching methods and curricular innovations.
  • Supporting Victims of Academic Misconduct: Resources and tools for individuals impacted by academic dishonesty.
  • GenAI and Academic Integrity: Ethical challenges and solutions in using AI tools in academic settings.
  • Ethical Assessment in the Age of AI: Strategies for maintaining integrity in evaluation and assessment processes.
