Is it a #clone or a #remix? Tagging Plagiarism in the Classroom

Featuring Kristin Brabec, Turnitin Professional Development

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.

Stopping Plagiarism at the Source: Why Assignments Matter

Featuring Barry Gilmore, Author: "Plagiarism: Why it Happens and How to Prevent It"

Every teacher dreads it—the plagiarized paper, the confrontation with a student, the demise of trust and learning. As schools move toward an online future, educators are understandably concerned about increases in plagiarism. Yet while the problem is real, there are solutions beyond forcing teachers into the role of police. In this presentation, we will reconsider our assignments with the goal of discovering how we can stop plagiarism before it happens. We’ll also touch on the role of school and classroom culture and teacher attitudes and preparation.

We'll aim to learn strategies that help students:

  • Desire to write original work
  • Engage in activities that avoid the need to plagiarize
  • Avoid bad decision-making by focusing on learning
