ASCILITE Live! webinar: E-cheating and assessment security: best practices for upholding academic integrity

“Is my institution doing enough to ensure that assessments are secure?”

This is a question that is on the minds of administrators and educators across higher education as the sector reflects on the pivot to remote learning delivery and looks ahead to hybrid learning modalities. Alongside digital equity, preserving a culture of academic integrity is more important than ever before, as ‘e-cheating’ surges in an online learning environment without traditional integrity mechanisms.

Addressing e-cheating and assessment security in this changed education landscape, means understanding the e-cheating lifecycle, establishing best practices, and harnessing the intersection of pedagogy and technology to provide solutions.

This webinar, which was co-sponsored by Turnitin, featured experts in the field of e-cheating and assessment security in order to tackle this timely topic and inform education professionals on the current state of play in e-cheating (including contract cheating) as well as to bolster their institutions’ academic integrity strategy.

Presenters for this session were Chukwudi Ogoh (Turnitin), Professor Phil Dawson (Deakin University) and Associate Professor Ann Rogerson (University of Wollongong)
