Integrity of scholarship is essential for an

In our course, we need to establish a set of
shared values. Following are values adopted from the International Center for
Academic Integrity, which are open to discussion and possible alteration. Each
team should adopt these values and must articulate the expectations for how
they are made manifest within the team’s work together.
Honesty: We will
honestly demonstrate our knowledge and abilities according to standards and
expectations. We will also communicate openly and without deception, including
citing appropriate sources.
Responsibility: We will complete our work on time and participate fully (both mentally
and physically) in class and in the laboratory. We will also contribute to work
done in teams.
Respect: We will
speak openly with one another while respecting diverse viewpoints and
perspectives. We will also provide sufficient space for others to voice their
Fairness: We will
contribute equally to laboratory work, papers, project, and team learning, so
that we are not “freeloading” off of others on our teams. We will also not seek
unfair advantages over others.
Trustworthiness: We will not engage in personal affairs while on class time, and we
will be open and transparent about what we are doing in class. We will also not
distribute course materials to others
