How Can I Minimize Cheating in the Classroom?

Technology and punishment alone are not solving the problem of cheating. This program will show you real world-tested techniques to help you minimize cheating by inspiring a growth mindset in your students and encouraging them to change their goals from getting good grades to mastery learning.

Change the Cheating Mindset

Academic dishonesty is a particularly challenging problem.

It’s common to focus on using technology to detect plagiarism or on mandating severe punishments for students caught breaking the rules.

What if you’re more interested in changing the mindset that leads to cheating in the first place?
 
How Can I Minimize Cheating in the Classroom?, a Magna 20-Minute Mentor, tackles the issue from this perspective. Presenter James M. Lang, author of Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty and director of the Center of Teaching Excellence and an English professor at Assumption College, draws on his experience and his extensive research to show you how learning environment design plays a significant role in whether or not students cheat.

In just 20 minutes you’ll learn:

  • The three key elements of your course that affect student cheating
  • How those three elements shape student learning
  • Specific practices you can implement to increase student learning and decrease academic dishonesty

You’ll see how making modifications in your course design can help students adopt a growth mindset and encourage them to change their goals from getting good grades to mastery learning.

Technology and punishment alone are not solving the problem of cheating.
