Lessons in Citizenship: Using Collaboration in the Classroom to Build Community, Foster Academic Integrity, and Model Civic Responsibility
Journal on Excellence in College Teaching
The rise in academic integrity violations and the connection between dishonest behavior in college and civic behavior after graduation signal a call to educators that more should be done to prepare students to be ethical, responsible citizens. Through collaboration, particularly on written projects for their peers, students can feel more a part of an academic community and realize its many virtues. The author explores how collective authoring models the complex dimensions of responsible citizenship, which are often overlooked during the undergraduate experience, and can better prepare students to participate in their civic communities with honesty and integrity.
