Description/Abstract

Benjamin Franklin asserts, “There is much difference between imitating a man and counterfeiting him.” How do we help students appreciate this subtle difference? For that matter, what is the difference? When undergraduates embark upon literature reviews, theses, and other scholarly writing, students may fail to appreciate and respect these differences– with serious consequences. This interactive workshop will help participants better understand the many facets of plagiarism, the pervasive incidence of plagiarism, and the multiple causes for the occurrence of plagiarism. Participants will be armed with teaching strategies to help students avoid even accidental plagiarism.
