How do instructors respond when they encounter plagiarism? And, how do these responses change if plagiarism continues? Turnitin conducted a survey of over 1,600 U.S. instructors to find out how instructors are addressing plagiarism in their classes and what impact academic integrity policies and multiple infractions may have in informing instructor response.

In this engaging session, we review the survey findings and highlight key takeaways from the survey. Please join us for this first of a two-part series that explores instructor response to plagiarism.
