Faculty Learning Community – Cheating Lessons by James Langhands with cheat sheets

Faculty Learning Communities (FLCs) are considered high-impact practices to foster culture change among faculty. At CTL, the FLC groups have focused their discussions and projects on learning about and experimenting with evidence-based teaching practices.

Cheating Lessons by James Lang examines strategies which reduce cheating and improve student performance overall.   When we build a culture of academic integrity, we can do more than reduce academic dishonesty, we can become better educators. Cheating is a persistent problem in academics however, in our course design and daily classroom activities, Lang points out we may be creating unintended opportunities for cheating.  This FLC will not only work with the book, but also focus on how these ideas can impact our teaching and classrooms.
