Technological advances such as Artificial Intelligence (AI) present an existential challenge to the whole concept of academic integrity in educational settings as well as the integrity and value of the qualifications being offered to graduates. In response to academic integrity breaches, educational settings have implemented several strategies. Out of these several responses, the most widely adopted in diverse educational settings is authentic assessment design. This is understandable because, assessment design is primarily emphasized in addressing academic integrity breaches because such breaches commonly occur in assessments. Moreover, the traditional evidence of educational attainment is typically a paper certificate obtained through the submission of tangible representations of learning, often in written form. This assessment design strategy of promoting academic integrity has become even more pronounced with the advent of powerful AI systems that possess the capability to generate assessments that often surpass the quality of what some teachers and students produce. Although educators are aware of the various strategies that can be used to combat academic integrity breaches, in reality they tend to overly focus on the assessment design strategy at the expense of real learning, as evidenced by the widespread use of plagiarism detection tools such as Turnitin, GPT-2 Output detector, and GPT-zero, as well as resorting to in-class examinations. This conceptual study explores the pedagogical potential of authentic learning strategies to promote academic integrity, drawing on experiential theories of learning. Authentic learning and authentic assessment are closely related but distinct concepts.
