5 Key Strategies for Dealing with Cheating
Academic Dishonesty. It happens. From the tiny sheet of paper that hides cleverly under a leg, to the blatantly wondering eyes that scan nearby papers, to the seemingly limitless range of possibilities that cell phones bring, cheating has become an art form for some students in this modern era. Yes, if they spent a tenth of that time actually studying there would be no need to cheat, but we all know how far that adage goes. As teachers, we must stay current and adept to evolutionary cheating tactics, we must remain consistent in our punishments, and we must always make it clear that academic honesty is of paramount importance. Teachers enrolled in this course will explore realistic pedagogical methodologies that focus on maintaining and upholding academic honesty and dealing with academic dishonesty if/when it does happen.
