James Lang’s “Cheating Lessons”

The several dozen of you who filled the Washington Room last September will remember Jim Lang’s talk, “Building a Better Learning Environment: Lessons from Academic Dishonesty.” Lang made a compelling case that the surest ways to prevent academic dishonesty also happen to be, happily, the best ways to help students learn. The research he drew on for his talk has resulted in a book, Cheating Lessons: Learning from Academic Dishonesty, which has just been published by Harvard University Press.  You can also read a nutshell version of Lang’s argument in this recent piece in the Boston Globe.
