Ethics Cafe: Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty


Location: The Fishbowl, Hesburgh Library

James Lang will discuss his latest book, Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty (Harvard University Press, 2013). As stated on the book’s jacket, “Lang reminds educators that their primary focus should be on promoting learning, and not preventing cheating. This helpful book provides accessible summaries of literature on academic cheating, its nature, causes, and prevalence – and illustrative examples of how successful instructors build their courses to encourage learning, and as a by-product, reduce cheating.” James Lang is Associate Professor of English and Director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Assumption College. After receiving his B.A. from the University of Notre Dame in English and Philosophy, Professor Lang continued his education in English completing an M.A. at St. Louis University and Ph.D. at Northwestern University.
