Look out for the Cheater. He's gonna build you up just to let you down …Tough luck for the cheater. Too bad for the fool-hearted clown. (John Krenski)


The Cheater

3 minutes

Cheating in remote tests and other online work has become a topic of discussion in higher education recently. Here's an intro to the topic—and to this episode.


Academic Integrity

16.5 minutes

One way to approach "the cheating issue" in our courses is to promote a culture of academic honesty from the start. But how do we do that? Kevin shares some practical tips you can use for a comprehensive approach to creating and maintaining a culture of professional and academic integrity in your A&P courses (or any courses, really).

    • What the Best College Teachers Do (the Ken Bain book mentioned in this episode)
    • The Syllabus Episode (mentioned several times in this podcast)
    • Academic Integrity (A special topic page at The A&P Professor website; includes additional information and links to resources)
    • Why be honest? (about academic integrity; for students)
    • Kevin’s Academic Integrity statement (This is a statement I have used in my course syllabi. You are welcome to adapt it according to your own course and institution’s needs. It’s an example to get you thinking about actively promoting honesty.)
    • Kevin’ Academic Integrity Case Study handout/activity (This document is an example of an in-class activity that I use to promote discussion of academic integrity. It’s a handout used for small group discussions. You can adapt it to fit your needs, per the attribution/share-alike license enclosed in the document.)
    • Frank O'Neill @growgraymatter (Turn on your "Frank O'Neill filter.")

Even though we should empathize with students in how we handle cheating, compassion dictates that we also hold them accountable.
