The 2022 CRADLE Symposium was successfully held online from 12 to 19 October
The topic this year was “Challenging Cheating“ which intentionally can be interpreted as having many meanings from the challenges that cheating poses to education, to challenging the very idea of cheating, and beyond – be prepared for contradictory perspectives to be unpacked. We were proud to host two exciting interactive public events as pivotal highlights of the symposium program. These included a Keynote Presentation and a Panel Session.
The Keynote Presentation was held on Wednesday 12 October by Dr Sarah Eaton, associate professor at the Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary. Sarah presented her thoughts on the challenges of academic ethics, integrity and ‘wicked problems’ such as contract cheating in her presentation “Academic Integrity as a Transdisciplinary Field of Research, Policy, and Practice”.

To conclude the Symposium we convened an Interactive Panel Session with:
- Professor Bruce MacFarlane, The Education University of Hong Kong,
- Professor Jeannie Paterson, University of Melbourne,
- Dr Vicky Nagy, University of Tasmania, and
- CRADLE’s Professor Phill Dawson.
Informed by the closed part of the Symposium we unpacked suppositions and shifting positions relating to cheating in higher education and charted a new way forward.
