LSRI Seminar: contract cheating and assessment design

A Learning Sciences Research Institute event. Presented by Professor Phil Newton, Director of Learning and Teaching, Swansea University Medical School.

Recent media attention and guidance from the UK Quality Assurance Agency has highlighted the problem of Contract Cheating in Higher Education. In 2016 the Australian Department of Education and Training commissioned a two-year Strategic Priority Project led by the University of South Australia to investigate the problem of contract cheating and the role of assessment design. The project collected the largest dataset to date on this topic and has developed evidence-based resources to assist the sector in addressing this threat to academic integrity. This workshop will share findings and resources from the project.

This seminar will be facilitated by Professor Phil Newton from Swansea University, who is a co-investigator on the project —

Professor Phil Newton has published numerous studies on contract cheating and is engaged with the QAA and the Council of Europe to identify strategies to address it. The workshop here will share findings and resources from a large Australian project aimed at understanding and addressing contract cheating. He is currently the Director of Learning and Teaching at the Swansea University Medical School.

The talk will finish at 5pm and will be followed by a question period.
