Plagscan: Plagiarism and Contract Cheating: How to Tackle Omnipresent Threats to Education Systems With Software
Date Thursday, Nov 28 Time – Room Pavillon Theatre 1
With the progression of globalisation and digitalisation, the ways students access knowledge and learn are quite different compared to 20 years ago. Not only is there an unlimited supply of data and resources online, but the growing amount of anonymous contract cheaters or 'academic ghostwriters' are endangering students' future. This session highlights issues such as:
- What threatens the capacity of earning a degree from a student's perspective?
- How professors, teachers and instructors can ensure that the education system stays equal and fair?
- What the chances and limitations of software solutions in modern education systems are?
