Avoiding Plagiarism Pitfalls or Whose Line Is It, Anyway?
Steven Strang, Patricia Durisin Barbera
Thu Jan 20, 10:30am-12:00pm, 14N-132

Enrollment limited: first come, first served
Limited to 20 participants.
Single session event

A hands-on workshop and discussion about the nature and recognition of plagiarism. All the concern in academia about plagiarism (not to mention all the headlines about plagiarism in the last few years) motivates this discussion and hands-on workshop. What is plagiarism? How can we avoid it? What’s the difference between plagiarism and research, between plagiarism and appropriate help, between plagiarizing and paying homage to other writers? What kinds of tools are available to aid you in your writing and citing process? Attend this session and find out! Bring your thoughts and questions with you.
