What is Contract Cheating & What Can we Do About it?

Speaker: Tricia Bertram Gallant, International Center for Academic Integrity, Transition Committee Co-Chair

Contract cheating is the most egregious form of cheating that can happen within educational institutions. When students arrange for other people to complete their academic work for them, they undermine the very purpose of the academic assessment and defraud the public with credentials that are not honest and trustworthy representations of the students’ knowledge and abilities. In this webinar, Dr. Tricia Bertram Gallant will overview this phenomenon known as contract cheating, what institutions can do to prevent it from occurring and what faculty must do to detect it.

Empezar desde cero: Estrategias para construir una comunidad de integridad académica

English translation: Starting from Scratch: Building an Academic Integrity Community

Speaker: Nathalia Franco Pérez from Centro de Integridad, Universidad EAFIT – Medellin, Columbia

Una política de integridad académica requiere, antes que nada, voluntad institucional. Se trata un proceso lento y a largo plazo. Es fundamental co-construir este proyecto con los grupos de interés: docentes, estudiantes, directivos, administrativos, egresados y empleadores. Para lograr impacto, será importante diseñar estrategias que tengan un fundamento filosófico y académico riguroso, así como implementar acciones audaces que poco a poco lleven el tema de la integridad académica al “alma” del campus. Es cuestión de tiempo, de voluntad, de creatividad y de una convicción profunda en el valor de educar en el ser.
