Cheating is a concern in many schools and universities all over the world. How can cheating and plagiarism be prevented? Do "academic integrity" policies work? What can be done when students are found cheating? Often there are no easy answers for administrators caught between students, instructors and parents. This workshop provides an opportunity for educators and university policy makers to explore questions such as: What leads to cheating and plagiarism? Are there connections between school cheating and cultures of corruption? Participants will have opportunities to consider the potential of participatory decision-making and restorative discipline processes to help educational institutions lay firm foundations for academic excellence and integrity of future public leaders. The workshop will be of interest to educators, educational administrators, leaders of student organizations and others interested in educational institutions.
