Academic Integrity

Wednesday, November 13, 2013,  at 11:30 a.m. in Union Building room 231/232.

As a recent article in the Chronicle of Higher Education argued, "the amount of cheating that takes place on our campuses may well depend on the structures of the learning environment. The curriculum requirements, the course design, the daily classroom practices, the nature and administration of assignments and exams, and the students' relationship with the instructor—all of those can be modified in order to reduce (or induce, if we so wanted) cheating" (Lang, "Cheating Lessons, Part 1").  Our discussion during this teaching roundtable will focus on these issues as opposed to the more common approach to cheating which focuses on the student rather than the environment."
