You are invited to participate in a PhD research project, undertaken through Edith Cowan University, entitled:

Decisions to report contract cheating: A phenomenological study of the experiences of academic staff at Australian higher education providers.

Your participation will involve a 45 – 90 minute in-depth interview, conducted face to face via Zoom, exploring your experiences of contract cheating. Anonymity and confidentiality guaranteed, this is your opportunity to share.
