Instruction By Design: Academic Integrity – Students’ Motivation for Cheating

Instruction by Design Podcast

In this episode, the instructional designers from Academic Innovation (Steven Crawford, Jinnette Senecal, Celia Coochwytewa, and Aaron Kraft) with special guest Babette Kraft (Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College) identify various acts that students may commit that are considered as “cheating” and discuss why students may choose to cheat on an assignment or in a course. We then describe course design approaches could help minimize cheating.
