What motivates students to cheat and how can we prevent cheating? Join us every other week for this summer’s CTLgrads Bookclub as we read Cheating Lessons (2013) by James Lang, PhD, and dig into the research on student learning, memory, attention, and motivation and what it can tell us about why students cheat. These sessions are open to graduate students and postdocs, feel free to join any or all sessions throughout the summer! Please read the pages/sections listed below in order to contribute to and learn from this bookclub session.
Pre-reading for this session:
Pages 105-128 (Chapter 6: Lowering Stakes)
Access Lang’s book on Clio here: https://clio.columbia.edu/catalog/14043242
Participants are expected to read approximately 35 pages prior to each session. During our discussions, we will focus on how to translate education research and Lang’s recommendations into our own teaching practices—in person or online.
