Turnitin and Plagiarism Prevention
3/26/14 12-1 pm in W3014 and streaming online via Adobe Connect
Plagiarism is a problem that has
affected all of us at some point. The School is pleased to announce the
general availability of Turnitin -- a website with tools that can help
you detect plagiarism in your courses and which and helps students
improve on their source referencing and source paraphrasing.
CTL and the Office of Academic Integrity are partnering on this workshop
to introduce you to Turnitin and how to most effectively use the tool.
We strongly encourage you to attend to get a solid understanding of what
Turnitin does and does not do, and to get a better understanding of the
School's policy on Turnitin usage. The CTL team will also discuss how
to help prevent plagiarism in assignments by creating assignments which
make it fundamentally difficult for students to plagiarize.
