Plagiarism Education Week to run from 22-26 April

9 April 2013

Despite teachers' best efforts, plagiarism remains a serious problem throughout the higher education sector. In a bid to tackle the problem, Turnitin is running a week of free online activities to help teachers foster student understanding of the issue and devise tactics to avoid it occurring.

Group work at UCL

Plagiarism Education Week will look at how to get students to use and acknowledge sources appropriately and also produce original work of their own. In conjunction with the International Centre for Academic Integrity (ICAI), the School for Ethical Education (SEE) and Plagiarism Today, Turnitin will host a series of free, live webcasts and offer additional resources to participants.

The webcasts will cover:

  • Monday 22 April: Causes of Plagiarism
  • Tuesday 23 April: Types of Plagiarism
  • Wednesday 24 April: Responses to Plagiarism
  • Thursday 25 April: Approaches to Plagiarism
  • Friday 26 April: Originality and Creativity

All webcasts are free to participate in. To find out more about the sessions and register to take part, visit the Plagiarism Education Week website.
