Reducing instances of academic dishonesty before they happen can make your life easier. What can you do to promote academic integrity in your classes? Including the University's Honor Code in your written syllabus and articulating potential consequences for violations up-front are the first steps. This workshop will examine current issues of cheating and plagiarism on campus, including strategies used by students. We will discuss how to prevent academic dishonesty, as well as how to confront cheating behavior. We'll also review the University's procedures to resolve academic dishonesty. Remember that by proactively addressing academic integrity, we encourage learning and make our teaching more enjoyable.
