Challenges to academic integrity in 2023 are developing at pace. Two trends dominating the narrative are the continuing growth of contract cheating cases and the sharp rise of AI writing tools. Along with all these challenges, however, comes fresh opportunities. New ways to further support student development and make our systems and processes more robust to protect the integrity of education.

In this free webinar series we are excited to be joined by three expert educators in the field of academic integrity. As well as addressing the big questions relating to contract cheating, AI writing, ChatGPT and AI paraphrasing, we’ll also provide practical examples of how institutions are tackling these challenges on campuses today.

Webinar 3: The Student View On Contract Cheating

This event has now closed.

Guest Speakers: Sandie Dann and Catherine Messinger

In 2022 Turnitin conducted a student survey asking about their attitudes to essay mills and contract cheating - it told us students felt under pressure, and even overwhelmed, when turning to third parties to complete work. In this webinar, we'll discuss how institutions can understand some of the pressures on students and help them to manage them. We are excited to be joined by Sandie Dann and Catherine Messinger, who will share approaches Loughborough University takes to support its students as well as best practice tactics that other educational institutions can use too.
