Cheating at Harvard.
Did they cut the cahds in Hahvahd Yahd?
Have you been following the story of the cheating scandal at Harvard?
It’s kind of interesting.
According to the NY Times, a group of 125 undergrads who were taking what we used to call a Micky Mouse course called Introduction to Congress are accused of cheating.
“This is unprecedented in its scope and magnitude,” said Jay Harris, the dean of undergraduate education.
The final exam is a take-home test. Students can refer to their notes, it’s open book and the students can even use the internet.
Students just aren’t allowed to talk to each other.
That would be collaboration.
By the way, do a Google search of Harvard Business Review articles on collaboration and sharing knowledge. There are hundreds of them.
