Homotopy Type of Independence Complexes of Certain Families of Graphs

Samir Shukla, Shuchita Goyal & Anurag Singh
We show that the independence complexes of generalised Mycielskian of complete graphs are homotopy equivalent to a wedge sum of spheres, and determine the number of copies and the dimensions of these spheres. We also prove that the independence complexes of categorical product of complete graphs are wedge sum of circles, upto homotopy. Further, we show that if we perturb a graph $G$ in a certain way, then the independence complex of this new graph...

Oriented unicyclic graphs with minimal skew Randić energy

Wei Gao & Yanling Shao
Let $G$ be a simple graph with vertex set $V(G)=\{v_{1},v_{2},$ $\dots,v_{n}\}$, and $G^{\sigma}$ be an orientation of $G$. Denote by $d(v_i)$ the degree of the vertex $v_i$ for $i=1,2,\dots,n$. The skew Randić matrix of $G^{\sigma}$, denoted by $R_S(G^{\sigma})$, is the real skew-symmetric matrix $(r_{ij})_{n\times n}$, where $r_{ij}={1}/{\sqrt{d(v_i)d(v_j)}}$ and $r_{ji}=-{1}/{\sqrt{d(v_i)d(v_j)}}$ if $v_i\rightarrow v_j$ is an arc of $G^{\sigma}$, otherwise $r_{ij}=r_{ji}=0$. The skew Randi\'{c} energy $\mathcal{RE}_S(G^{\sigma})$ of $G^{\sigma}$ is defined as the sum of the norms of...

Remediation: Understanding Academic Integrity

Anita Chaudhuri
Recent data on academic misconduct shared by some Canadian post-secondary institutions have reported that the numbers have doubled (CBC News, 2020; CTV News Regina, 2021) or increased significantly by up to 38% (UCalgary News, 2020). These instances establish academic integrity as a current and critically important topic for institutions as well as the scholarship of teaching and learning. Discussions in this ethical area of concern focus on ways to convince students “to behave as honest...

An Aggie's Approach to Restorative Academic Integrity Practices

Kathleen Wilson
This presentation will focus on restorative practices employed at The School of Agriculture in Treaty 1 land (Winnipeg, MB) in an effort to work with students on repairing issues related to academic integrity and community within the school. We will explore intention as it relates to student success and prevention of recidivism, while focusing on rejecting traditional means of punitive action and the long-term effects of these practices on students. Attendees will gain insight on...

Encouraging Academic Integrity Through a Preventative Framework

Jessica Kalra & Vicki Vogel
Through a collaboration between the Teaching and Curriculum Development Centre (TCDC), the Centre for Intercultural Engagement (CIE) and the Academic Integrity and Student Conduct Office, Langara has developed an open access toolkit for educators called “Encouraging Academic Integrity Through a Preventative Framework”. The impetus for developing a toolkit focused on encouraging academic integrity came from increasing requests for support in addressing the challenges of academic misconduct at our institution. This toolkit was developed to provide...

Beyond Tradition: Innovative Mentorship Models for Higher Education

Lorelli Nowell
As higher education institutions and the people who learn, work, and live within them, continue to face challenges, it is critical to foster safe, inclusive, and respectful cultures of learning and growth. Numerous mentorship models can be meaningfully integrated into campus culture to support professional and personal learning and development across various disciplines and career stages. In this paper, I introduce several mentorship models, present some of the challenges experienced across various career stages, and...

Unstable Ground: How Mentorship Altered Our View of Experiential and Active Education on Student Learning

Colleen Whidden & Carolyn Main
We, as two instructors in Business and Education, sought to explore the research question: is student learning impacted when instructors engage in peer-to-peer mentoring focused on improving understanding of experiential education and active learning in the post-secondary classroom? Within a sociological intrinsic case study framework, we began by defining experiential education, active learning, and peer-to-peer mentoring to situate if instructor interaction in this mentoring model impacts student learning. The data was triangulated for validity between...

The Name of the Game: Utilizing Experiential Learning in the Classroom to Engage, Empower and Reflect on Student Learning and Assessment

Shauna Schechtel, Vivian Mozol, Marissa Clapson, Brian Gilbert, Judy Tran & Stephen White
In the modern post-secondary classroom, there is a push for more experiential and active learning activities for students. A variety of benefits such as engagement, improved learning and self regulated learning have ensued with these different types of learning. Studies regarding these benefits have mostly centered on experiences carefully orchestrated by instructors, rather than experiences that were created by students under the guidance of instructors. Herein is a study of the benefits and efficiency, of...

Vicarious Learning through Informational Interviews: A New Experiential Learning Tool

Tarryn Bourhill & Derrick Rancourt
Many students find it difficult to transition into the workforce successfully. They often accept unsuitable positions through happenstance rather than actively planning their career trajectories. This is due to their unawareness of career exploration and mapping. We use informational interviewing as an in class experiential learning assignment to solve this problem. The assignment gives students the opportunity to source information from industry experts and expand their professional network. It helps students develop their professional presence,...

Innovative Certificate Programs in University Teaching and Learning: Experiential Learning for Graduate Students and Postdoctoral Scholars

Experiential Learning and Archaeology: Reconciliation through Excavation

Kelsey Pennanen & Lynnita-Jo Guillet
The discipline of archaeology is uniquely positioned to allow for inclusion of culturally appropriate curricula to be incorporated into student learning objectives as mentioned in the 94 Calls to Action by the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada (2015). In this paper the authors discuss the creation, implementation, and qualitative feedback of a community-directed and curriculum-based education program developed by graduate students that uses archaeology to mediate student learning and meet curriculum goals in both...

Exploring the Role of Viewing Technologies in the Chemistry Classroom

Kassem Omar & Vivian Mozol
Spatial ability is an important tool in chemistry and this ability can be improved. Various technologies have been used to improve spatial ability. However, it is not clear if viewing technologies should take the place of the model kit; the traditional method of learning about molecular structures. Our research aims to address this gap. In our study, we aimed to take advantage of student affinity to technology to drive spatial ability improvements (in the context...

Supporting Design Thinking Through a Game-Based Pedagogy in Entrepreneurship Education

Wilian Gatti Junior, Emily Marasco, Beaumie Kim & Laleh Behjat
Design thinking is an important concept presented in entrepreneurship education. However, the cognitive aspect of design thinking has been neglected by business teaching and learning practices. The aim of this paper is to present a game-based pedagogy to support the cognitive aspect of design thinking and to promote this approach as an alternative to predictive and adaptive pedagogies that are still dominant in entrepreneurial learning. To disseminate our pedagogical approach, we designed and presented experiential...

Deterring Cheating Using a Complex Assessment Design

Sonja Bjelobaba
Attempts to translate written examination normally done in a lecture hall to an online environment during an emergency remote learning caused by Covid-19 have not been proved successful, but led to a sharp increase of cases of suspected misconduct. This presentation is based on the paper (Bjelobaba, 2021) that discusses the relationship between assessments design and academic integrity: is it possible to deter students from cheating – including contract cheating – by assessment design? Previous...
