“Learning from Failure: The Case of Cheating in Higher Education.”A lecture by Professr James Lang (Assumption College)

None of us wants to think about cheating on our own campus, but Lang argues that there is much to be learned by taking a closer look. If we think about cheating in higher education as a failure of the teaching and learning transaction, that failure should open pathways to new learning for students, faculty, and administrators at America’s colleges and universities. Drawing from research on cheating and cognitive theory, he will present key lessons we can learn from cheating in higher education.    

James M. Lang is an Associate Professor of English and the Director of the Center for Teaching Excellence at Assumption College in Worcester, MA. He is the author of four books, the most recent of which are Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty (Harvard University Press, 2013), and On Course: A Week-by-Week Guide to Your First Semester of College Teaching (Harvard UP, 2008). Lang writes a monthly column on teaching and learning for The Chronicle of Higher Education; his work has been appearing in the Chronicle since 1999. His book reviews and public scholarship on higher education have appeared in a wide variety of newspapers and magazines, including the Boston Globe, Chicago Tribune, Time, and America. He is a member of the Fulbright Senior Specialist roster in higher education. 

This is an important topic that will gain from having a variety of voices and experiences in the room. Students, staff, and faculty are all welcome! Please help spread the word and forward the web card below.
