Collaborative Futures Critical Reflections on Publicly Active Graduate Education Edited by Amanda Gilvin, Georgia M. Roberts and Craig Martin

It is indispensable reading not only for graduate students seeking inspiration, resources, and usable frameworks for their engaged scholarship, but for the faculty who are called upon to mentor them, and for university administrators seeking encouraging answers to questions about the future of graduate education.

Pedagogy, not Policing: Positive Approaches to Academic Integrity at the University Edited by Tyra Twomey, Ken Sagendorf, and Holly White

Pedagogy, not Policing is born out of a shared belief in the twin values of quality teaching and community effort. Bringing together the voices of graduate and undergraduate students, TAs, faculty, and other members of university communities, it asks and addresses such questions as what Academic Integrity (AI) is, what roles it plays in our colleges and universities, whom it serves, and what practices nourish and/or jeopardize it. The contributors will both challenge what you think you know about AI and offer pragmatic, concrete tools for how to promote it in classrooms.
2009 AESA Critics Choice Book Award

“In questioning some of the familiar assumptions about academic integrity which pose barriers to active learning and thoughtful pedagogy, this volume represents a welcome leap forward to wrench the primary focus away from policing and punishment and directing it towards sound teaching practice.”
