Preventing & Monitoring Cheating and Plagiarism

One national study conducted by the Academic Integrity Center at Duke University suggests that 3 in 4 college students cheat. And cheating is more likely when a teaching assistant gives the exam. Why? Because they thought they could get away with it. Be prepared! By the end of this workshop participants will be better able to identify and prevent cheating in general, and to manage violations of the University of Pittsburgh’s academic integrity policy.
Objectives: By the end of this workshop, students will be able to…

  • Define academic integrity, cheating and plagiarism
  • Discuss ways to prevent plagiarism and cheating
  • Describe how to deal with cheating and plagiarism at the University of Pittsburgh

This workshop may be counted toward the Pedagogy concentration of the Achievement in Pedagogy badge, offered through the Graduate Student Teaching Initiative. For more information, contact
