    ASHE/CAHEP Featured Speaker Presentation Tricia Bertram Gallant

    Academic Integrity in the 21st Century: A Teaching and Learning Imperative Hotel Room TBA1

Chair/Discussion Facilitator: Les Goodchild, Santa Clara University

    Tricia Bertram Gallant, national expert on academic integrity, will discuss the issues raised in her recent book, Academic Integrity in the 21st Century: A Teaching and Learning Imperative.

    Bertram Gallant suggests that a paradigm shift in thinking about student academic misconduct is needed that moves from "How do we stop students from cheating?" to one that emphasizes "How

    do we ensure students are learning?" Her presentation will situate the issue of cheating within the history of higher education before offering new and improved ways of stimulating organizational movement on this issue, including within our higher education programs, and suggesting opportunities for expanded research on this topic.
