Academic integrity and assessment security are issues that affect us all at University. They are wicked problems requiring many approaches to tackle. One great source of information and advice about all things to do with assessment is the CRADLE group (Centre for Research in Assessment and Digital Learning) down at Deakin Uni. 

This October CRADLE are running a free online research symposium forum and keynote addressing the topic ‘Challenging Cheating’:

which intentionally can be interpreted as having many meanings – from the challenges that cheating poses to education, to challenging the very idea of cheating, and beyond. It is meant to open up discussion, pose problems, and create space for a range of diverse and potentially contradictory perspectives to contribute.
