Addressing Academic Dishonesty in the Age of Ubiquitous Technology (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu

Addressing Academic Dishonesty in the Age of Ubiquitous Technology (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Academic Honesty in Higher Ed | Scoop.it
Key Takeaways
Technology can help fight cheating that is itself based on technology, especially with tweaking of assignments and assessments in a way that makes it difficult to cheat.
Students should be made aware of resources such as university writing centers and tools such as Endnote.
Training about copyright, plagiarism, and time management can help students succeed without feeling that they have to cut corners.
Relevant codes and policies should be clearly stated in communications such as orientation materials, student handbooks, and course syllabi to establish expectations and reduce confrontations between instructors and students.

Dennis T OConnor's curator insight, June 9, 2:52 PM

This Educause review is on point.  Solid common sense advice.

Steve Vaitl's curator insight, June 20, 11:57 AM

For my teaching friends or anyone considering doing writing at a post academic level. What a great resource for information on cutting down the rate of plagiarism. Much of what I see is not intentional but that makes little difference to a protective author, or the legal system.

Glad to see at Kansas City Kansas Community College we are already instituting most of these policies and practices.
