Corporate plagiarism during remote work – a concern?

Zeenath Reza Khan, Atharv Arvikar, Swathi Venugopal & Priyanka Hemnani
Plagiarism is a type of academic misconduct that has plagued the education sector for years. It may be one of the most common forms of academic misconducts that is identified in schools (K-12) and higher education sector. Plagiarism is when someone uses someone else’ intellectual property and passes it off as own work without any acknowledgement or attribution. While the topic is well documented and discussed in the academic world, very little is known about...

Gamification of Academic Integrity: Reviewing an Evaluation Tool

Zeenath Reza Khan, Shivadas Sivasubramaniam, Sandra F. Gomes, Sonja Bjelobaba, Salim Razi, Lorna Waddington & Laura Ribeiro
Gamification and game-based learning have been around since 2008 and have become more important by the 2015s. Academics and educators, whether in the educational sector or professional development in the corporate world, recognise the many benefits of either using game-based learning or gamifying learning modules because they bring about greater engagement from participants, allow for knowledge retention and skills acquisition through practice immersion and so on. The European Network for Academic Integrity formed a working...

Performing Mentorship in Collaborative Research Teams

Nicole Armos & Callista Chasse
This paper shares preliminary findings from a reflective inquiry into the nature of collaboration and mentorship through digital spaces within a national SSHRC-funded research team the authors form a part of. Our research collaboration has been marked by particularly close friendships, co-creation and mutual learning that have helped to deepen our research and provide a meaningful and enriching experience for everyone involved. Proposing that mentorship and collaboration can be viewed as a performance, which can...

Canonical functions: a proof via topological dynamics

Michael Pinsker & Manuel Bodirsky
Canonical functions are a powerful concept with numerous applications in the study of groups, monoids, and clones on countable structures with Ramsey-type properties. In this short note, we present a proof of the existence of canonical functions in certain sets using topological dynamics, providing a shorter alternative to the original combinatorial argument. We moreover present equivalent algebraic characterisations of canonicity.

On the homotopy type of complexes of graphs with bounded domination number

Jesus Gonzalez & Teresa I. Hoekstra-Mendoza
Let $D_{n,\gamma}$ be the complex of graphs on $n$ vertices and domination number at least~$\gamma$. We prove that $D_{n,n-2}$ has the homotopy type of a finite wedge of 2-spheres. This is done by using discrete Morse theory techniques. Acyclicity of the needed matching is proved by introducing a relativized form of a well known method for constructing acyclic matchings on suitable chunks of simplices. Our approach allows us to extend our results to the realm...

On the real roots of domination polynomials

Jason Brown & Iain Beaton
A dominating set $S$ of a graph $G$ of order $n$ is a subset of the vertices of $G$ such that every vertex is either in $S$ or adjacent to a vertex of $S$. The domination polynomial is defined by $D(G,x) = \sum d_k x^k$ where $d_k$ is the number of dominating sets in $G$ with cardinality $k$. In this paper we show that the closure of the real roots of domination polynomials is $(-\infty,0]$.

Bailey and Daum's q-Kummer Theorem and Extensions

Nadia Li & Wenchang Chu
By means of the linearization method, we establish four analytical formulae for the $q$-Kummer sum extended by two integer parameters. Ten closed formulae are presented as examples.

Restorative Practices as a Tool to Affect Peer Influence on Academic Integrity and Misconduct

Paul Sopcak & Alycia Stewart
Integrity is often related to acting ethically based on intrinsic motivation, rather than external controls. The disconcerting spike in misconduct cases in the pandemic-related, uninvigilated, remote learning environments has made it clear how far away from promoting integrity and its fundamental values (ICAI, 2021) over mere rule compliance we really are. Further, research routinely finds peer influence to be one of the most important factors affecting academic misconduct. Restorative Practices (RP), when applied not only...

Emerging Horizons, Part Five. Kenzie’s Story: Periods and Ellipses

Michael Lang & Catherine Laing
This fifth installment of the Emerging Horizons series explores Kenzie’s digital storytelling (DST) experience (please see the introductory editorial, Crafting Meaning, Cultivating Understanding, to access the documentary film on which the series is based). Kenzie's storyline revealed how culturally accepted language and metanarratives around health and wellness can create dissonance for Adolescent and Young Adult (AYA) cancer survivors as they attempt to share their experiences with others. Alternatively, the genuine conversation inherent in the Story...

An Experiential Learning Model: Collaborative Student Creations of Multidisciplinary Community Classroom Experience

Lorelei Boschman, Colleen Whidden & Jason McLester
A community classroom experience, grounded in the philosophy of experiential learning, was the gauntlet we threw down for our Education students and ourselves as instructors. We situated this experience in the pillars of community classroom and experiential learning. Goals for our students became twofold: goals as a current post-secondary student and goals as a future educator. To activate this experience, groups of students engaged both collaboratively and individually with exploratory learning at a local community...

Transforming a Volunteer Program into a Meaningful Experiential Learning Opportunity.

Taylor Trottier-Scully & Kerry Ritchie
Through a previous review of high impact practices at our institution, we identified that health science students have very few opportunities to engage in experiential learning (EL) in the current curriculum. This paper describes our work to transform an existing volunteer opportunity at an allied health clinic, into a meaningful, student-driven, co-curricular EL opportunity. Specifically, we incorporated critical EL elements (i.e. reflection, feedback) into the existing volunteer program and developed five program specific learning outcomes...

Impact of the Quick-Response Code Based In-Class Assignments on Students Engagement and Retention

Richard R. J. Goulding, Anna Maria Harlick, Richard Kelly & Karoliina Oksanen
The paper describes a teaching technique alternative to online-based student response systems. We explore the potential of quick response (QR) code sheets as a tool for formative assessment, feedback, as well as a way to increase class engagement, student participation, information retention, and as a method to develop communication skills. The technique is neither institution nor course bound and can be implemented in classes of numerous sizes and levels. While it resembles more traditional teaching...

Scrutinizing Teachers’ Awareness of Global Citizenship Education (GCED) in Jordan

Naima Al-Husban & Mohammad Tawalbeh
This study aimed to determine the Global Citizenship Education (GCED) awareness level of teachers of different subjects in Jordan and to investigate whether their global citizenship awareness levels varied in terms of different demographic variables. The sample comprised 4305 teachers. Data were gathered using an awareness scale and an interview. Findings revealed that teachers showed an unsatisfactory level of awareness of GCED; females were more aware of GCED. Based on the results, it is recommended...

Could Alberta Enact a Sub-National Open Banking Regime?

Ryan Clements
Open banking is successfully operating, and has proved beneficial, in many countries. But Canada has not yet adopted it. Alberta doesn’t need to wait for the federal government to implement a national framework to benefit from this innovation. Using international precedent, this article charts a pragmatic course for how the province can immediately participate in the benefits of open banking, open finance, and consumer data portability, without requiring a complex sub-national regulatory and governance structure...

The Other in The Self: The Ontological Metaphoricity of Language

Through text and illustrations, I (first author) theorize language as a being that becomes and revels in its plurality, illuminating the inherent and necessary aesthetic and multimodal dimensions of any struggle toward meaning. To do so, I start by foregrounding my own experiences with the diversity that characterizes language to portray the significance of studying its ontology and plurality. I then identify philosophical hermeneutics as a practical metatheory that centrally positions language as a medium...
