Disrupting Plagiarism: Building a Culture of Academic Honesty
In a time when information is instantly available and content creation is a few clicks away, academic integrity can easily become a gray area for students. Explicitly teaching skills and concepts associated with academic integrity and providing feedback throughout the research and writing process can build a culture of academic honesty in classrooms.
This Educator guide presents an overview of the resources contained within the Disrupting Plagiarism pack of resources. It has been designed to provide teachers and students with a formative approach to maintaining academic integrity and addressing plagiarism meaningfully when it occurs. Descriptions and direct links are provided for the guides, hand-outs, classroom activities, and posters, all accompanied by suggestions for their implementation.
These resources were designed with flexibility in mind. Educators may choose to conduct activities as a comprehensive unit or may prefer to select individual resources that suit their instructional needs.
