A day to promote academic honesty
Lethbridge College will join educational institutions around the world for the fourth annual Day of Action Against Contract Cheating. The day is devoted to making students aware of the consequences of academic dishonesty and encouraging them to take a pledge to #DefeatTheCheat and #ExcelWithIntegrity. Look for activities and games in Centre Core, including prizes for students taking the pledge. Contract cheating occurs when students contract a third party, paid or unpaid, to contribute to or complete an assignment or other academic work that the student takes credit for. This might include purchasing an assignment from an online platform; paying someone to write an exam; getting help that goes beyond editing to writing most of an assignment; or using friends, family members, peers or others to complete assignments. Contract cheating has become a billion-dollar industry worldwide. We have experts who have done research on academic integrity primed and ready to talk about this important issue.
Wednesday, Oct. 16, 6 to 7 p.m.
