learning at the core of dealing with student plagiarism: it's harder
than you think.
How can teachers ensure students' learning stays at the core of managing plagiarism? So many aspects of HE life might threaten that focus. Teachers might be dealing with workload pressures, poorly designed courses and the sometimes punitive approach of their institutions. Why should students practice academic integrity in the face of plentiful opportunities to cheat; or reduced study time because of their need to work, look after family or have fun? Is it only fear of getting caught? We will explore these and other issues during this workshop and look at practical solutions for ensuring learning underpins actions to deter plagiarism. The workshop will offer ideas, a chance to talk with others and some good practice guidelines from around the world.
