Higher Education (HE) is more accessible due to technology. Students and instructors are no longer limited by space, time, and text. Students can complete entire degrees without ever having to step on a campus. Though technology has increased students’ opportunities for an education, it has also increased their opportunities to circumvent it. Do the grades listed on transcripts represent students’ achievement toward course and/or program goals or something else? In the digital age, academic dishonesty is a major concern for HE administrators and faculty.
This panel discussion addresses academic dishonesty: the motivation behind it, the innovations to achieve it, and UM’s attempts to combat it.
