Published on

What do teaching staff need to be aware of when thinking about student plagiarism? How has student plagiarism changed due to the increased use of technology? This presentation, from the British Council event New Technologies in Education 2017 and supported by Turnitin, explores the issues surrounding plagiarism and the need to develop a culture of academic integrity. The talk is particularly aimed to support conference delegates from Serbia interested in improving teaching and learning in that region. Several examples are taken from the South East European Project on Policies for Academic Integrity (SEEPPAI).
