Brookes Learning and Teaching Exhibition and Conference 2021

Supporting academic integrity in remote teaching and assessment contexts

Dr Mary Davis, Oxford Brookes Business School

Teaching and assessing students remotely presents new challenges for academic integrity. This blog submission discusses four main current challenges for academic integrity: an upsurge in contract cheating activity, an increase in the use of social media for cheating, risks of cheating in time-controlled assessment and IT-related issues of collusion. The blog will provide delegates with suggestions including instructions, advice and links to support students in remote teaching and assessment contexts, so that they avoid risks of cheating and make good decisions about academic practice.
