A short course review checklist for college-level courses. Building on the OSCQR Rubric and the Peralta Online Equity Rubric, this checklist integrates strategies for Universal Design for Learning, Culturally Responsive Teaching, and Open Pedagogy. It includes Quality indicators for Course Site Design, Assessments, Course Activities and Content, and Course Accessibility. It is intended to support meaningful consultation between subject matter experts and instructional designers. This resource is developed for Open Oregon Educational Resources.
This module is designed to support instructors in creating a culture of academic integrity in their courses at the University of Oregon. Students learn best when we develop a shared understanding of what academic integrity is, how to support it, and what university resources we can draw on together. Instructors are encouraged to import and adapt the module to suit their teaching needs, including adding disciplinary customizations.

This module, Ducks Have Integrity: Academic Conduct at UO, is a part of IntroDUCKtion for all incoming first-years and transfer students at the University of Oregon. Module content is based on current research around why students engage in academic misconduct and what strategies have effectively increased academic integrity (we were particularly informed by The Handbook for Academic Integrity, edited by Tracy Bretag).
The module was developed in collaboration between UO Libraries, the Teaching Engagement Program, and UO Online, and in consultation with Student Conduct and Community Standards. We are grateful to the instructors who shared their experiences and challenges, as this informed the design, and those students who gave feedback, as that feedback was invaluable.
This module was not designed for use in individual classes at the University of Oregon, but rather for all students to go through as part of their new student experience. Response from students so far on the module has been overwhelmingly positive (we sought anonymous feedback from participants), and student reflections about why academic integrity matters and how they can plan for it are insightful and heartening. We encourage other institutions to adapt the module for similar new student experiences.
