Dave Tomar | Author & Managing Editor, Influence Networks
In this video, we chat with Dave Tomar about better understanding the root causes of contract cheating and its potential solutions, drawing from his experience as a former ghostwriter who worked in the commercial cheating industry for over 10 years.
Grounding the discussion on his previous clientele of students for whom he wrote assignments, Dave presents a compelling account of the student mindset and what motivates desperate students in their efforts to cheat.
Suggesting that the academic writing of incoming undergraduate students is rarely at the level required, Dave advocates for earlier, formative writing intervention that can identify at-risk students, and the importance of knowing a ‘student’s voice’ to detect contract cheating in their writing and benchmark their journey and performance.
How can we address academic deficiencies in hybrid learning and crush student demand for contract cheating services in the first place? Watch the video and read Dave’s latest book.
