Stamping Out Cheating
There has been a recent surge in the number of contract cheating services available to tertiary students. In an effort to protect the integrity and reputation of Australia’s higher education, the Morrison Government has drafted legislation that would make it an offence to provide or advertise cheating services to higher education students. With cheating services targeted by this new legislation and not students, this raises the question of whether enough is being done to prevent students from utilising these services. To discuss the efforts made by institutions at a tertiary level to ensure academic integrity, we were joined by Academic Lead of the Sydney University Office of Educational Integrity Peter McCallum.
