Aligning IACC University with Your Academic Calendar

From the various IACC themes, University departments can design their own programme based on the best fit with existing course curriculum and the interests of the students.

June 2012 Onwards

The call for registration in the IACC University programme opens. University departments interested in participating should designate one member of staff as a coordinator and point of contact.

July 2012

A set of bibliographies and resources on the various IACC themes will be made available through the IACC University web portal. Additional relevant academic resources will be also available through the Anti-Corruption Research Network website. These will help course instructors design and integrate corruption related modules into their curriculum.

August 2012

Draft IACC session agenda, list of experts and topics will be posted here.

September 2012

Full conference agenda and session schedules will be distributed to participating universities.

October-November 2012

During the conference each participating university department is welcome to broadcast as few or as many of the 15th IACC sessions as they wish. We ask that coordinators let us know which sessions are planned on being live streamed to students at your earliest convenience in October. We recommend that course coordinators integrate one or two corruption based themes into existing courses, or that the department holds at least one special lecture or seminar for interested students. In the months leading up to the conference, students will also have the opportunity to join a global anti-corruption discussion by participating in the My IACC Online Forum. Here, students and professors are free to contribute to discussions that encompass (but are not restricted to) the scope of the IACC themes and topics.

During the Conference: 7-10 November 2012

Live broadcast of IACC sessions

You will be provided with a link to our on-line broadcast channel, which you will be able to connect to from a computer or laptop and project in any hall or lecture theatre with high speed internet. Sessions will be two hours long.

Two-way live video streaming

The IACC University classes wishing to participate via video in the conference sessions will receive an invitation and a link to join a video conferencing channel. You will need a video or webcam to be able to participate in the two-way live video streaming. We ask that the coordinators tell us which sessions students would like to participate in by October.

October

The video conferencing sessions will be moderated by a young journalist anchor, who is a coordinating member of the IACC Team. The session moderators will select several questions from the student body which will then be posed to the experts participating live on the panel.

Video notes

Before or after a conference session, students may send video notes to the IACC moderator and young journalist anchor. Such video notes would normally be comments or recommendations and would be submitted via the online forum. Recorded statements and recommendations from student groups around the world will be compiled into short video sequences which will be screened before or after conference sessions and on screens around the conference venue.

Twitter comments

During each live video conferencing session individual students and professors / course instructors are also encouraged to send questions or comments to the IACC using twitter. Questions will be moderated and posed to the expert panels and tweets will appear in real-time on a board at the front of the conference hall.

Discussion forum

Comments and questions can be also posted on the online discussion forum. This will give the experts and the audience the opportunity to continue the discussions and answer questions that were not possible within the limited time frame of the live sessions.

Submitted recommendations

All recorded comments and recommendations will be considered for inclusion in the official Brasilia Declaration – a short document summarising the conclusions of the conference. Where included, all recommendations from Universities will be fully credited here on the IACC website.
