The TEQSA Masterclass: Contract cheating detection and deterrence is designed to help academic and professional staff improve their ability to prevent, identify and investigate suspected cases of contract cheating (where students outsource their cheating to a third party).

Comprising 8 online modules, the Masterclass was developed by the higher education regulator in partnership with leading Australian academic integrity experts (including Kane Murdoch from Macquarie University). The self-directed, self-paced course is free to all Macquarie University staff.

In addition to the online component, participants will also be invited to in-person networking workshops to further build skills and share good practice. The workshops will be held later this year on Tuesday 15 and Wednesday 16 August in Sydney.

  • 8 online modules
  • Duration: 3 hours, self-directed
  • Optional in-person workshop
  • Cost: Free

The Masterclass builds on TEQSA’s partnership approach with the sector to address the integrity risk posed by commercial academic cheating and adds to suite of co-developed resources such as the Academic Integrity Toolkit.
