Webinar on Contract Cheating, e-Cheating and Academic Integrity. Practical Approaches to ensuring Digital Equity

In light of the shift to remote learning and the associated challenges, two very common questions have emerged:

  • "Are my students learning and taking ownership for their assessment outcomes?"
  • "Are my students submitting their own original work?"

No institution is immune from the risk of contract cheating - the practice of students engaging a third party to complete assignments - but there are ways to combat this insidious form of misconduct.

All are welcome, however, this is particularly relevant to Academic Integrity officers and Academic System Managers, in Learning, Teaching and Development; Digital Learning officers and anyone who is interested in setting up academic integrity practices within their institutions.
