Speakers

 

Irene Glendinning started researching strategies for academic integrity in 2010, after working in computer science for most of her career. She has focused on designing workable institutional policies for deterring misconduct in education and research and encouraging critical thinking and scholarly learning.

She recently completed a global study into how accreditation and quality assurance bodies are addressing corruption in higher education. Other research has included surveys of national and institutional policies for academic integrity in higher education covering 38 countries across Europe and Eurasia. She continues to be engaged in international advisory groups and research projects focusing on improving academic integrity and fighting corruption.

She completed a three-year term as Vice President for the European Network for Academic Integrity (ENAI) in May 2020. She is currently coordinating a review of academic integrity strategy for the Coventry University Group and is based in the Office of Teaching and Learning.

Denise Whitelock is the Director for the Institute of Educational Technology at The Open University.  She is a Professor of Technology Enhanced Learning and has over twenty-five years’ experience in Artificial Intelligence for designing, researching and evaluating online and computer-based learning in Higher Education. She recently led the UK’s contribution to the Adaptive Trust e-Assessment System for Learning (TeSLA) project.

The overall objective of the TeSLA project was to define and develop an e-assessment system, which ensures learners authentication and authorship in online and blended learning environments while avoiding the time and physical space limitations imposed by a face-to-face examination. She is currently the Editor of Open Learning:The Journal of Open, Distance & e-Learning.

Her work has received international recognition through holding visiting Chairs at the Autonoma University, Barcelona and the British University in Dubai. She has a wide-ranging and compelling publication list.
