Contract cheating is causing considerable concern across the education sector. This session shares some recent findings from two large student and staff surveys conducted across several institutions in Australia alongside other research conducted into the industry. It uses these findings to equip academic staff with new information, approaches and strategies to detect and deter contract cheating. It concentrates on how the industry works, who is doing the work, what assessment design can and can’t achieve for us and supports academic staff in designing learning activities with their students to raise awareness about the problem. This session aims to help academic staff identify the specific challenges that contract cheating presents to them in their professional context. They will also be able to explain the difference between detection and deterrence and why both are important. They will also be able to approach the design of learning activities that support constructive conversations with students about contract cheating as a deterrence strategy.
