A Priest and a Rabbi walk into a bar….
Plenary Session, Tuesday 27th September 2:15pm – 3:30pm

It might sound like the beginning of an old joke but it is far from it. A panel of three distinguished religious leaders and educators meet in a congenial seating to exchange ideas and perspectives on issues of ethical scholarship. The session will be moderated by bar tender, former ABC journalist and personality, Verity James. The audience/patrons will be invited to contribute to the conversation. Just like the joke there’s no telling how it will end….
The guests in this session will be:

Research Discussion Groups

To enhance the networking opportunities of the conference a session dedicated to discussing research possibilities is programmed for the session following afternoon tea on day two. After a short introduction, breakout groups will form around different topics of research interest, such as the research clusters of the Asia Pacific Forum on Educational Integrity (plagiarism, digital media and integrity, research ethics, and transnational/intercultural approaches). Participants will be able to use the session to discover like-minded colleagues who may be interested in future collaborative research in these or any other area of academic integrity they may be interested in pursuing.

Discussion-based Sessions

This style of conference presentation was used successfully and appreciated by delegates at 4APCEI in Wollongong in 2009. It was offered as an alternative to presenters and four papers will be presented in this format at 5APCEI. These papers are marked in the program with an asterisk (*).
