Competition Details and Guidelines
This semester the Skills Centre is delighted to announce an academic integrity video competition with some fabulous prizes on offer for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place, sponsored by the Office of the Vice President for Learning and Teaching. We encourage to you start thinking creatively and get your submissions in! See all the details below:
What does it entail?
We want you to create a short video (1-3 minutes) on the topic of academic integrity or academic misconduct. The video should take a narrative form, perhaps showcasing a particular scenario, rather than be a recorded presentation.
The video should relate to one (or more) of the following categories:
- The values of academic integrity (honesty, trust, fairness, respect, responsibility, courage)
- Taking pride in your academic work and achievements #MyOwnWork
- The skills you gain from doing your own work
- Scenarios of academic misconduct and the consequences of committing them
Need inspiration or tips?
Do you have some ideas, but still not quite sure how to put together your video?

We also have two upcoming sessions on Video Skills in the Skills Centre to offer advice on filming and edting your videos. Join us on November 8th from 10-11am or November 15th from 11-12pm. You can book your place for these Video Skills sessions through our bookings calendar. If you missed our sessions but would like some advice on filming or editing your video, please contact email@example.com and we can arrange a one-on-one session for you.
What will we do with your video?
The Skills Centre will share submitted videos on our social media platforms and may use them as a learning resource in short courses. Help us to inform and inspire future generations of learners!
