Is This Cheating?
Cheating isn’t a new phenomenon. By the time you’ve reached university, it’s likely you’ve been told what is considered cheating and what isn’t. Writing the answers to your exam on your arm-that’s cheating. Looking over classmate’s shoulder to see their answers- cheating. And of course- paying someone to take an exam or write a paper for you- that’s obviously cheating. Right?
On this episode, We speak with Amanda White, Senior Lecturer in accounting at the UTS Business School, about her solution- the Academic Integrity Board Game.
- Kane Murdoch- UNSW academic integrity
- Phillip Dawson writes on legislating out contract cheating on the Deakin University blog.
- The structure of Amanda’s board game, was framed on Donald Cressey’s 1979 Fraud Triangle Theory.
