Do students think that we should “defeat the cheat”? Or should we “excel with integrity”?
It’s really great to see Students Unions getting on board to share the message that cheating is wrong.
Here’s a video discussion which originally formed a live broadcast on Facebook between Darren Clarke, Student Union President at Staffordshire University and Dr. Thomas Lancaster. This was recorded as part of the 2nd International Day of Action against Contract Cheating.
At the end, you can see Darren give his whiteboard declaration showing his support for the campaign.
We’re encouraging more Student Unions to support events like this. They don’t have to be timed with the International Day of Action (which was also Global Ethics Day). Getting students involved in saying no to cheating is really having a positive effect on academic integrity.
