CEE Faculty Workshop - A cheatsheet to address Chegg: Dealing with it while promoting academic integrity
From Kem Saichaie
Cheating continues to challenge faculty and TAs in the transition to remote teaching. One increasingly common form of cheating is the mis-use of web-based “tutoring” and “homework help” services, such as Chegg. These services sell answers to posted questions in near-real-time for subscribed users, and are familiar to most college students. In this workshop, we will describe how these services work, provide detailed instructions for how to detect and report cheating, and, most importantly, present a variety of teaching practices that will help you promote academic integrity and reduce cheating in the classroom.
This workshop is being offered as a collaboration between a faculty member and specialists from the Center for Educational Effectiveness (CEE) and the Office of Student Support and Judicial Affairs (OSSJA). It is intended to provide practical guidance for instructors, teaching assistants, and administrators. The session will be recorded along with its materials.
