Presentation Description

This workshop will explore the academy's dilemma in dealing with plagiarism in student writing by looking at the research on plagiarism and on Turnitin, a plagiarism detection device. Participants will likely find that plagiarism does not appear in the literature as a rigid construct; however, plagiarism detection device, such as Turnitin, do imply a singular notion of plagiarism. Workshop participants will probably find themselves in lively discussions about plagiarism, faculty fears, student ethics, and the obligations of the academy to respond to what the literature suggests is a rising degree of plagiarism in student writing.
