Today my research assistants, Jenny and Ian, collaborated with me to facilitate a workshop to faculty members and grad students in the Werklund School of Education, University of Calgary, on plagiarism. This workshop is part of the knowledge sharing and mobilization for a research project on plagiarism in our school of education.
Here’s a photo of the group discussing their experiences with plagiarism in their professional practice in higher education contexts.
We brainstormed ideas about why students plagiarize:
Then, we talked about the reasons why students plagiarize, as informed by the research literature, and compared participants’ responses to what is evident in the literature. There were numerous parallels between participants’ experiences and what we found in the literature.
Finally, we shared strategies about how to prevent plagiarism and also how to address it if you encounter it in a student’s work.
