The @BlackboardK12 BITS Learning Sessions #33 #BbK12Live

I've partnered with BlackboardK12 to share out the awesome sessions they are having this Fall. Educators can sign up to attend and share with other great educators what they have learned. I'll featurae the session and the description on my blog each week and on my Twitter account. If you have questions, feel free to shoot a tweet to @BlackboardK12. Have fun learning and sharing!

Methods for Encouraging Academic Honesty

As educators we have a wonderful opportunity to help students attain knowledge and develop skill and strong character as a result of hard work that is found at the core of a valuable education. As such, academic honesty is a critical component of teaching and learning. In this session, participants will learn about countermeasures for improving academic honesty, pros and cons for each countermeasure, tips for implementing the countermeasures, and evidence that demonstrates that the countermeasures work.
