Cheating in the Digital Age

How to Prevent it and How to Handle It

Teaching assistants and instructors have the responsibility to discourage students from cheating and to appropriately deal with cheating when it is detected.When students cheat, faculty can no longer fairly assess student work. Instructors and teaching assistants can reduce the incidence of cheating by paying specific attention to how they communicate their expectations to students, how they prepare their exams, and how they administer their exams. 

As a result of engaging in this PD Pod, trainees will be able to:

•Gain an understanding as to why and how students may cheat in and outside of the classroom

•Recognize criteria that may inadvertently promote cheating in a college classroom

•Identify specific steps to reduce or minimize the chances of cheating in the classroom

•Apply strategies and techniques to minimize cheating within the classroom

Coffee and donuts will be provided
