  Abstract: One of the most frustrating components of educators' work is having to deal with academic integrity issues. These span from "gaming the system" and unauthorized or unproductive collaborations to plagiarism and plain cheating: learners are betraying their educators, fellow students, and eventually themselves. Particularly in online courses, the creation and maintenance of a culture of academic integrity is seen as a growing and badly understood challenge. This talk discusses research on student work and interaction patterns, and presents interventions to foster productive engagement with course content.
