The Cheating Game: How do we play our cards right?
Bob Mann, Manager of Discipline and Appeals for Dalhousie University, and Susan Holmes, a member of Senate Discipline hearing panels for several years as well as a faculty member, have unique insights into the issue of academic integrity.
Through the sharing of short sketches of actual academic integrity cases (with identifying details removed) you will be informed and enlightened as you learn about the myriad of ways that students find to cheat. In particular, your appreciation for the challenges of enforcement of academic integrity policy with international students will be expanded.
In small groups you will explore a short scenario representing both sides of an allegation followed by a guided debrief. We will also provide some suggestions to consider when developing your course and syllabus that might help students to avoid the temptation to plagiarize and cheat, as well as to better prepare you to deal successfully with an allegation.
