Contract Cheating: Identifying, Preventing and Detecting – Webinar Slides

How do we, as university staff and instructors, identify, prevent and detect contract cheating. That was the theme I was asked to talk about for a webinar for Brunel University London, held on 23 September 2020, designed to celebrate the launch of Brunel’s new academic integrity procedures.

You can see the slides I used below (and also on my SlideShare account).



Although it is impossible to completely prevent contract cheating, I do believe there are strategies to help reduce the likelihood and impact of contract cheating and to mitigate for the risk that is poses to society. I discuss several such strategies in the slides.

We do need to continue to work to develop further strategies, along with a continued awareness of what contract cheating means for the sector.
