Preventing Student Plagiarism

Workshop by Spring Brennan, Tracie Ortiz, and Chrystal Trapani.

Plagiarism can be discouraged by designing assessments that emphasize writing mechanics, revision processes, and real-world relevance. Join us to discuss the causes of student plagiarism at ODU and strategies for redesigning essay, research paper, and discussion post assignments.

The workshop also addresses plagiarism as a symptom of learning disabilities—and how to create accessible writing assignments.
