The November 1 lecture by Professor Richard Quinn of the University of Central Florida Business School has become a sensation on You Tube, opening a discussion of plagiarism and cheating in Academia. When faced with the knowledge that up to 1/3 of his class of 600+students cheated, the Professor uses his class time to address the issue. His lecture is both methodical and passionate. Among the many issues that are raised with this scandal is the use of test banks in courses.
What is also interesting is the students who feel unfairly treated by the accusation. Check out the My Fox Orlando piece concerning one of student’s claim of innocence. Also the comments below the story and video are eye opening. For the complete lecture click below.
