Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty
When students engage in academically dishonest behaviors, they are reacting inappropriately to a learning environment that has not sufficiently captured their attention or motivated them to learn. Dr. Lang will address how to gain a better understanding of the reasons for academically dishonest behavior and use that knowledge to build better learning environments.
Drawing on research in cognitive theory, Dr. Lang describes the differences between how novice learners process and understand new information and ideas, and how their processes differ from those of the experts who are teaching them. Recognizing these differences may help design courses, units, or assignments that foster more richly connected knowledge networks within students.
This event is sponsored by the Kaneb Center for Teaching and Learning. All are welcome and graduate students can register for this professional development event online.
