WINNIPEG, MB — On June 2nd, universities and colleges from across the province came together to address academic integrity at the University of Manitoba. The Academic Integrity Inter-Institutional Meeting (AIIIM) was an opportunity for institutions to share strategies and resources for promoting learning experiences centered on integrity. The Centre for the Advancement of Teaching and Learning at the University of Manitoba hosted the teaching and learning event. It was open to academic staff from all post-secondary institutions in Manitoba.
Academic integrity is a prominent subject among universities and colleges in Manitoba. Since members from post-secondary communities expressed interest in an event focused on teaching and learning, The Centre at the University of Manitoba planned AIIIM with a collaborative mindset.
The event was a success, with representation from across the province. It shows that there is a province-wide interest in a collaborative approach to teaching and learning.

The day-long meeting featured a number of interactive sessions that included discussions among academic staff from different institutions. AIIIM 2017 provided a place for participants to:
- Share the ways their institutions promote academic integrity
- Share their ideas, expertise, successes and challenges around teaching and learning with colleagues from across Manitoba
- Learn from the experiences of their colleagues
- Discuss ways in which members from different institutions can collaborate on projects related to academic integrity
- Learn about opportunities to be involved in the planning and preparation of AIIIM 2018
Kim Grenier Mintenko, Associate Director of Campus Manitoba, was on hand at AIIIM 2017 to learn about the work being done to promote academic integrity at Manitoba’s post-secondary institutions. “At Campus Manitoba, we value collaboration among our partner institutions,” she said. “We’re happy to see that there’s a growing enthusiasm about working together, and we’re eager to support this kind of work.”
Plans for a 2018 event are already underway. Assiniboine Community College has stepped forward as the host for next year’s AIIIM. We’re looking forward to next year’s event!
