Academic Integrity

The various schools and colleges of the University have different academic policies and procedures, so it is important to be aware of what differences exist. What an instructor also needs to keep in mind is that policies that apply to a given student are determined by that student’s unit, not by the school or college in which the course is offered. This section provides sources to consult for academic policies specific to the College of LS&A and other schools.
 
The Office of Student Academic Affairs (734-764-7297), located at 1255 Angell Hall, distributes a Handbook for Faculty and Instructional Staff, which outlines instructional policies and procedures within the College. The information contained in the Handbook comes from the Faculty Code, the governing document created by the LS&A faculty. The Handbook covers policies regarding examinations, grading, incompletes, etc. and explains the various forms used by instructors. The Handbook concludes with a list of offices to which an instructor might need to refer.

A number of faculty members at the University of Michigan (U-M) are capturing lectures and creating podcasts and screencasts to provide supplementary learning material, to free up class time for active learning experiences, or to make learning material accessible to the general public. This paper reviews research on the use and impact of lecture capture technology, discusses challenges and implications of using this technology in classrooms, and provides guidance for using this tool to enhance teaching and student learning.
