About this Masterclass
Developed in partnership with Australian academic integrity experts, this Masterclass will strengthen your knowledge of academic integrity issues and develop your skills to prevent and investigate instances of contract cheating (where students outsource their cheating to a third party).
This Masterclass is self-directed, self-paced and only accessible to academics or professional staff with an Australian higher education provider email address.
The Masterclass builds on TEQSA’s partnership approach with the sector to address the integrity risk posed by commercial academic cheating and adds to the suite of co-developed resources such as the Academic Integrity Toolkit.
