Event description

Description

Studies have shown that three out of four college students will cheat at least once in the course of their four-year college careers. While many faculty turn to policies like mandating severe punishments for students caught cheating, there are better strategies that can not only reduce cheating but actually encourage learning. For this “flipped workshop”, participants will watch this 20-minute presentation from James Lang, author of Small Teaching and Cheating Lessons, prior to attending the lunch. We will then meet in person to discuss and extend the ideas presented in the video.

[Note: participants must activate their account to access the 20-Minute Mentor videos; if you have not already done so, please follow these registration directions (you must have an SDSU email address).]

As a result of participating, faculty will be able to…

  • Recognize aspects of your courses that can influence academic dishonesty

  • Use effectively designed assessments to help students develop mastery of learning goals

  • Create opportunities for students to choose how they demonstrate their mastery of course content

  • Explain growth mindset success strategies to students

  • Use feedback to guide students toward a growth mindset

This event is part of the CTL series Academic Integrity.


* Graduate students are welcome to attend all CTL events, space permitting. If an event fills up, GTAs will be moved to the waitlist in the order in which they registered.
