Academic Integrity Conference

Several NU colleagues participated in the “Academic Integrity: issues and perspectives. Best practices international research” forum jointly organized organized by KAZGUU and NU. It was a great interaction between students, faculty, and higher education leaders from many Kazakhstani universities.  You can see conference materials here. We hope forums of this kind will continue and we are looking forward to productive collaboration with Kazakhstani colleagues on this critically important issue.

Colleges looking for ways to curb high-tech cheating

From SmartBrief on EdTech:

“With easy access to smartphones and the Internet, colleges and universities are struggling to find ways to prevent students from cheating on tests and assignments. Researchers found that about 68% of undergraduates and 43% of graduate students admit to cheating. Students found to cheat the most, according to research, are those majoring in certain fields such as engineering and business.” Los Angeles Times (tiered subscription model)
