"Academic misconduct is a longstanding problem, one that unfortunately has not simply disappeared with the advent of the twenty-first century. Much has been written about the integrity of undergraduate academic work, but little has changed--higher education still responds to reports of student cheating by institutionalizing methods to prevent, police, and punish, and academic misconduct continues to exist in colleges and universities. This monograph considers the issue in the context of the complex forces that currently strain the teaching and learning environment. She proposes a new perspective that calls for campuses to shift from asking 'How do we stop students from cheating? to 'How do we ensure students are learning?' The alternative teaching and learning strategy outlined here positions student academic integrity at the center of a new perspective on teaching and learning, one that is gaining ground in contemporary educational institutions."
