Tuesday’s Top Tip: What in the world is the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) and why do I need to do it?
My top tip this week has been sparked by some queries coming through to us in Student Support over the past few weeks.
- What is the Academic Integrity Module (AIM)?
- Why do I need to care about it?
- I can’t remember if I have already done it, do I need to do it again?
Firstly, AIM covers the rules of academic integrity, essential for successful and ethical study practices at UNE. In other words, it helps to answer why copying and pasting others’ work is more than just frowned upon *insert scary music*.
Secondly, you need to care about it because of the point above … *insert more scary music* but even scarier is that it is compulsory and you won’t be able to submit any of your assessments until it is completed.
Lastly, if you have worked through the AIM once in your degree, you won’t need to do it again. You can double check if you have completed the AIM by checking your badges. If you did not know this section of Moodle exists, you can find it by following the steps below:
- Log in to Moodle
- Click your name on the top right hand corner of your screen
- Select ‘Profile’
- See under ‘Badges’ to find out if you have completed the Academic Integrity Module
If you haven’t completed the AIM, you can find the link in Moodle or by clicking here. https://www.une.edu.au/current-students/resources/academic-skills/academic-integrity-module
