UCLA Professor Lets Students Cheat To Learn

This is a pretty interesting idea. How many of you think this is a good idea? How many of you don't?

As I distributed the tests, the students began to talk and write. All of this would normally be called cheating. But it was completely okay by me. Who in their right mind would condone and encourage cheating among UCLA juniors and seniors? Perhaps someone with the idea that concepts in animal behavior can be taught by making their students live those concepts.
