Creating a Culture of Academic Integrity: Addressing Cheating in the Age of Technology
Thursday May 28th 9:00 am - 11:30 am
As faculty we may be offended and angered when students claim “I didn’t cheat, I purchased the paper.” “The publisher sold me the test bank answers so it can’t be cheating.” Research suggests that more than 70% of students admit to cheating at least once in their college career. Why do students cheat? Do students cheat more today due to access with technology? How can we address and reduce these behaviors? This interactive session will explore these issues and challenges including: examining our own attitudes and behaviors toward academic misconduct, analyzing case studies through a contextual lens, developing strategies to reduce cheating in our own courses and exploring ways to promote academic integrity campus wide.
