SNSPA International Week STRATEGICA Masterclass Academic Ethics in the Post-Pandemic Context

Academic ethics have always been a pivotal issue when addressing the imperatives of a healthy and integrity-based educational system. Nowadays, probably more than ever, the exigency for ethical conduct is even more compelling as the pandemic has entailed novel discussions on the grey areas in teaching and research due to the higher dependency on the online environment. Given the newly emerged academic challenges, the discussion will revolve around:

  • academic ethics before and after COVID-19: similarities and differences
  • what disruptive changes has the pandemic triggered in terms of ethics?
  • how to deal with the online-driven factors for ethical misconduct?
  • how to convince stakeholders not to cut corners in the academic environment?
