Tagging Plagiarism in the Classroom

Education Manager, Turnitin

With the "Plagiarism Spectrum," Turnitin identified the 10 most common types of plagiarism, employing a "Digital 2.0" naming convention--with names like "CTRL-C" and "Remix"--to help students understand the different ways that plagiarism can take form. Included with the study was a survey of nearly 900 secondary and higher education instructors that sought their input on the frequency and severity of these types.

In this interactive and engaging session, the Turnitin Professional Development team will discuss the implications of the Plagiarism Spectrum, highlight specific examples of both intentional and unintentional plagiarism, and present strategies for not just improving student awareness, but also campus-wide awareness.
