I took a webinar on plagiarism. I created this presentation to share with the administration at my school. I indicated clearly where I used text verbatim and credited the authors of the concepts.

Plagiarism in the Digital Age Plagiarism in the Digital Age Presentation Transcript

  • Plagiarism in the Digital Age by diana day 4.25.07
  • Plagiarism vs. Misuse of Sources
    • Rebecca Moore Howard suggests we distinguish between plagiarism and misuse of sources
    • She refers us to the Council of Writing Program Administrators site for the distinction
  • Institutional Change
    • “ Five Levers for Institutional Change” – by Julia Christensen Hughes (verbatim)
      • 1. Recommit to integrity as a core value
      • 2. Provide quality education
      • 3. Reform assessment practice
      • 4. Review, revise and clarify policies and procedures
      • 5. Provide educational/orientation activities
    This PowerPoint by Hughes contains the Five Levers in context.
  • Honor Codes
    • Not as effective in isolation, without a research skills curriculum in place
    • Tim Dodd speaks of “reciprocal responsibilities” between teachers and students
    • He also speaks of putting “speed bumps” in place -- a deep curricular and co-curricular connection to the honor code
  • Ideal Honor Code
    • Tim Dodd’s ideal honor code includes (verbatim):
      • • student involvement and ownership (for student buy-in)
      • • students are primary educators (recruit student leaders and esteemed peers)
      • • streamlined process (reduce the “hassle factor” for faculty buy-in)
      • • reliable investigation (no one is “on trial”)
      • • speaks to consensus institutional values
      • • enforceable and culturally appropriate policies
  • Create a Climate of Responsibility
    • Classroom Management
    • Skill Building
    • Assignment Design
  • Turnitin.com
    • Turnitin .com article in School Me! blog
    • Pro and con in Sept. 2003 Congressional Quarterly , plagiarism issue (on page 17)
    • Alternatives to “gotcha” use
  • Recommendations
    • Finish survey of LS research assignments; Diana and Pam prepare an overview of current practices and our recommendations; share with division
    • Do the same with MS and US
    • Establish a research committee to do extensive outreach to divisions and departments
    • While committee is working, consider voluntary Turnitin use for drafts & tutorials
    • Committee creates a 4-12 research curriculum based on best practices and feedback from community
    • Committee takes a close look at the school’s honor code and procedures.
