As information technology changes the character of education, new challenges to academic integrity arise. In some ways, cheating and plagiarism are easier than ever. In other ways, the uses of information are radically transformed such that traditional conceptions of academic dishonesty need to be rethought. The key objective of this address is to identify the impacts of information technology on cheating methods, cheating detection and prevention, and the ethics of academic integrity. As a result of this session the participant will gain resources that can be used immediately to reduce risks of academic dishonesty and to check their work for questionable practices. Students will gain resources that help protect their work against charges of academic dishonesty; faculty and administrators will gain resources valuable in attenuating academic dishonesty and upgrading institutional policy.
