What’s Behind the Culture of Academic Dishonesty | MindShift

What’s Behind the Culture of Academic Dishonesty | MindShift | Academic cheating | Scoop.it

Academic dishonesty, plagiarism, and cheating are hardly new. And as the history of the banking industry and baseball demonstrate, cheating scandals aren’t just limited to schools. With numerous incidents making headlines in recent months, however, questions are being raised about the validity and the pressures of standardized testing, as well as the security of testing practices. And some are asking if it’s time to scrutinize the underlying behaviors and motivation for all this cheating.

Capitalistic college sports must change

Recently, a decades-long academic scandal at University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill was uncovered. The systematic academic fraud was orchestrated by student services manager Deborah Crowder. Crowder has been accused of creating "paper classes" — registering sections of fraudulent independent study credit and classes that never actually met because they never existed. One source states that more than 3,100 students benefitted from these classes, receiving A’s and B’s for classes they didn’t

Culture Of Courage: Creating A Culture That Breeds Bravery

Culture Of Courage: Creating A Culture That Breeds Bravery | Academic cheating | Scoop.it

Yet the number one way to gaining competitive edge is by creating a culture where people feel safe and emboldened to innovate and challenge the status quo thinking. The first key to creating a 'culture of courage' is leading from possibility, not probability.
