Experience with facilitating professional development and TurnItIn - 18 views

  •  
    In an environment where global economy, global collaboration, and global 'knowledge' are 
    the aspiration of many countries, the understanding of the complexities of plagiarism becomes 
    a global requirement that needs to be addressed by all educators and learners. This paper 
    considers a simple definition of plagiarism, and then briefly considers reasons why students 
    plagiarise. At Unitec NZ, Te Puna Ako: The Centre for Teaching and Learning Innovation 
    (TPA:CTLI) is working closely with faculty, managers, student support services and library 
    personnel to introduce strategies and tools that can be integrated into programmes and 
    curricula whilst remaining flexible enough to be tailored for specific learners. The authors 
    therefore provide an overview of one of the tools available to check student work for 
    plagiarism - Turnitin - and describe the academic Professional Development (PD) 
    approaches that have been put in place to share existing expertise, as well as help staff at 
    Unitec NZ to use the tool in pedagogically informed ways, which also assist students in its 
    use. Evaluation and results are considered, before concluding with some recommendations. It 
    goes on to theorise how blended programmes that fully integrate academic literacy skills and 
    conventions might be used to positively scaffold students in the avoidance of plagiarism. 
    Conference participants will be asked to comment on and discuss their institutions' approach 
    to supporting the avoidance of plagiarism (including the utilisation of PDS and other 
    deterrents), describe their own personal experiences, and relate the strategies they employ in 
    their teaching practice and assessment design to help their learners avoid plagiarism. It is 
    planned to record the session so that the audience's narratives can be shared with other 
    practitioners.

    Very clever vocab builder that is flash based. I only wish that it would have a built-in audio file for each word (I don't think I saw one -- could have missed it).
