Over-Represented Students in Academic Misconduct

The second talk in part 2 of the Academic Integrity online webinar series is led by Dr Mary Davis on ‘Over-Represented Students in Academic Conduct Problems’ which considers issues of inclusivity with contract cheating. This is taking place on Wednesday 8th February 12-1pm, read her abstract below:

“Academic conduct problems do not occur equally across all student groups. Certain groups of students tend to be over-represented in referrals for academic misconduct, for example international postgraduate students or students with a disability. Join this session to find out why this is happening and what institutions and educators can do to reduce over-representation and make academic integrity inclusive and accessible to all students.”
