EdSurge Live: How to Protect Academic Integrity From a Cheating Economy

Online Jan 28 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm - Pacific Time (US & Canada)

Price: Free

Educators are in an arms race these days against an industry that seeks to profit by helping students cheat. Some websites offer to write papers for students, others sell access to past tests by individual professors, and others will even take entire online courses for students, as a kind of study double.

Some of the companies offering these services say they don’t intend to support cheating, and have statements on their sites promising not to break academic rules. But officials say that despite those policies, a small percentage of students use such services for cheating, and that some companies have gotten more aggressive in recent years at soliciting customers on campuses.

What are the latest trends in this so-called “cheating economy,” and what are colleges and professors doing to guard against cheating?

Join us for this live online discussion, where we’ll be joined by experts on the topic. Special guests include:

  • Tricia Bertram Gallant, head of the International Center for Academic Integrity at the University of California at San Diego and author of the book Academic Integrity in the Twenty-First Century: A Teaching and Learning Imperative.
