Responsibility for addressing contract cheating does not rest solely with educators, and simplistic, singular solutions are on their own ineffective. Educators need adequate workload and time to develop authentic, engaging curriculum which is ‘less likely’ to be outsourced, and sufficient marking time to provide targeted, individualised feedback. It is essential that educators have opportunities to get to know their students, whether that is face-to-face or online; and training, support and access to a range of technologies that assist them to educate students, reduce students’ opportunities to cheat and help to identify cheating when it occurs.
