The future is now as educational developers foster academic integrity in universities
External factors impact academic integrity in universities, making academic misconduct by students in assessment a high risk factor. In response, institutions are embracing a suite of prevention, detection and investigative initiatives. Educational developers play a significant role in enhancing academic integrity in tertiary institutions through their collaboration with stakeholder groups, influence in policy development and interpretation, and currency in research findings. This paper briefly examines current and future educational development roles in fostering institutional academic integrity, using Bertram Gallant and Drinan’s (2008) four stage organisation change model (recognition and commitment, response generation. Implementation, and institutionalization). In each stage, examples are provided from the academic integrity work in a large, metropolitan, research-intensive university.
