Changing Culture to Promote Integrity: Why Progress Is Possible
3rd Annual Plagiarism Education Week
There is nothing immutable about the cheating culture that now exists in many educational settings worldwide. On the contrary, we know the values of students can be changed when institutions invest in the right strategies. This has happened in areas related to diversity, gender relations, and substance abuse -- both in the U.S. and overseas. So far, though, promoting integrity has not commanded adequate attention or resources.
This session will explore key drivers of the cheating culture and outline what it will take to dismantle that culture. It will examine cases where education institutions have changed how young people think and behave -- and how these lessons can be applied to promoting integrity.
