College instructors at exceptional institutions of higher learning such as Ohio State probably hope never to uncover instances of academic dishonesty in our courses. Unfortunately, the reality is that almost three-quarters of undergraduate students cheat at some point during their college years. James Lang’s book, Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty, offers a well-thought-out approach to academic integrity. We find this book so useful that we want to share it with you in our March book giveaway! Click here to enter to win!

From the publisher:

“Drawing on an array of findings from cognitive theory, Lang analyzes the specific, often hidden features of course design and daily classroom practice that create opportunities for cheating…Lang seeks to empower teachers to create more effective learning environments that foster intrinsic motivation, promote mastery, and instill the sense of self-efficacy that students need for deep learning.”
