Education
Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), Education, RMIT University

Research explored undergraduate Chinese international business student perspectives of academic integrity. In-depth interviews explored academic and student positions. Grounded and positioning theory underpinned the research design and analysis. Findings indicate that a range of factors, including mobility, English proficiency, technology and copyright simultaneously influence student perspectives of academic integrity.
