Academic Integrity Online Webinar

Friday, September 22, 2017

11:00 AM - 11:45 AM

This is a Webinar


Research suggests that more than half of all college students admit to cheating. The apparently limitless potential for dishonest behavior in online courses has caused some higher education professionals to become pseudo-vigilantes, while others seem only vaguely aware that a problem exists. Is there a balanced approach to reducing the opportunities for dishonest behavior in our distributed learning courses?

Careful course design, appropriate tools, and fostering a culture of ethics can reduce the likelihood of these behaviors occurring. In this session, the presenters will share the latest tools as well as time-tested best practices for “keeping it clean” in your online course.
