Contract cheating represents an international threat to the value of academic awards. Students using third parties to complete their essays and assignments are missing out on key learning opportunities. The use of contract cheating providers is frustrating to the majority of students, who are honest and putting in the time and effort to complete their own work.
To kick off the week of the International Day of Action against Contract Cheating, which takes place on Wednesday 16 October 2019, Dr. Thomas Lancaster and Dr. Irene Glendinning deliver an interactive webinar on contract cheating. The webinar is hosted by Turnitin.
This is the third in a series of webinars, but does not require prior knowledge of the previous webinars and the focus is suitable for people who know little about contract cheating. The webinar will consider the behaviours that contract cheating represents and the forms that contract cheating can take. Examples of how students are persuaded to commit contract cheating will be provided. Approaches to both deter and detect contract cheating will be considered, with reference to the opportunities afforded by the International Day of Action. The webinar will also provide you with the opportunity to ask questions about contract cheating and to tell others about your ideas for the International Day of Action.
The webinar takes place on: Monday 14 October 17:00-18:00 British Summer Time
The webinar will be recorded and the recording will be made available after the event.
