Academic Misconduct in Higher Education Today
University of Alabama
A recent study indicated that 74% of engineering students engaged in some sort of academic misconduct while a student. However, academic misconduct (cheating) has changed considerably from the days when most faculty members were students. Today, it no longer involves hiding crib sheets for exams and writing answers on your arm. This workshop looks at the current issues being encountered by faculty across the country, student perceptions regarding academic misconduct and fraud, and tools and techniques that exist to address the issues that are being encountered in today's classrooms.
Learning objectives: Awareness
- Make the audience aware of the current situation with respect to what students and institutions are encountering with respect to academic misconduct.
- Make the audience aware of tools and resources that can be used to address this issue in their classes.
