The FAITH project is an initiative focused on promoting academic integrity (AI) in higher education. It aims to establish a culture of AI by addressing deficiencies in existing AI policies within European institutions. The project emphasizes three key dimensions: detection, reaction, and deterrence of academic misconduct. It seeks to create a benchmark for AI policies through an academic integrity policy corpus, develop evidence-based guidelines, and provide training materials for stakeholders. Additionally, the project strives to support victims of unethical practices by creating an interactive portal and advisor network. FAITH aims to enhance educational quality by fostering honesty, trust, and ethical conduct in higher education.
PR1 - Policy For Good Practice
PR1 is a three-step blueprint to help higher education (HE) institutions develop effective academic integrity policies or benchmark their existing policies. The first step is to collect HE academic integrity (AI) policy documents from as many countries as possible and create an HEAI policy corpus. The second step is to analyze each AI policy and decide how much of the policy is detective, reactive or deterrent along with the qualifications of these components. The third step is to develop an evidence-based guideline for HE institutions that frames the detective, reactive and deterrent perspectives of AI policies.
The FAITH project aims to provide evidence-based guidance and training materials to detect and prevent academic misconduct in education. By analyzing factors that influence student behavior, the project will develop guidance materials to help educators and institutions identify and deter academic misconduct. Through the use of online courses and face-to-face workshops, the project will provide practical tools and strategies to promote academic integrity and ensure fair evaluation. The project aims to equip students, teachers, and administrators with the knowledge and skills they need to uphold academic integrity and maintain the credibility of educational institutions.
The FAITH project aims to create an interactive web portal that provides a support network for victims of unethical academic practice. This portal will serve as a platform where students, teachers, and administrators can access resources, such as guides, videos, and other multimedia content, to help them understand and combat academic misconduct. It will also provide a forum where victims of academic misconduct can share their experiences, seek advice and support, and connect with others who have had similar experiences. Through this interactive portal, the FAITH project hopes to promote a culture of academic integrity and empower students and educators to stand up against unethical practices.
