Cheating In The 21st Century: Strategies To Tackle Online Academic Dishonesty
Cheating and plagiarism in higher education continue to be persistent challenges. In the June 3, 2012 edition of The Chronicle of Higher Education, Jeffery Young explained the challenges technology has added to the problem of academic dishonesty, not only in the classroom but also in the rapidly increasing venue of online learning. Given the expanded strategies that make it easier to cheat than to learn, how can educators possibly tackle such a pervasive problem?
This webinar will identify types of academic dishonesty, as well as strategies that can help decrease incidences of this destructive trend in online learning. Participants will take away a clear picture of the learner’s inclination to violate academic codes of ethical behavior. They will also learn how to limit instances of cheating with careful design, implementation strategies, and ongoing monitoring.
