Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty Book Group

Facilitated by Julia Lehman Caldwell and Jessica Franson, College of Business
March 9, April 6 & April 27, 1-2 p.m.
CETL, Old Library 1142

Cheating Lessons BookDealing with academic misconduct is both discouraging and time consuming for instructors. This group will read James Lang's 2013 book Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty. We'll talk about course design and classroom practices that minimize opportunities for cheating and maximize opportunities for student learning. We'll talk about having an academic integrity policy, emphasizing mastery over performance, using authentic assessments, and other strategies that increase students' self-efficacy and intrinsic motivation. We also hope to explore reasons why students engage in academic misconduct, and share stories and experiences about different ways of addressing academic misconduct at its roots.
