Dr Laura Jenkins, Laura is a University Teacher in Psychology at Loughborough University, a Chartered Psychologist (CPsychol) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. Laura’s research interests focus around areas of personality and factors that could be influenced by personality. Today we are going to be talking about how three very specific personality traits may be linked to academic misconduct (in other words cheating) and what, if anything, teachers can do to intervene and stop academic misconduct occurring. We also talk about the challenges that face researchers trying to study both personality and cheating behaviour.
