Overall (and ongoing) issues
  • What is plagiarism?
  • Getting to grips with recipes v browning mince
    Threshold concepts?
  • Grey areas, where do you draw the line? - cant
    just pass task to software (10 match)
  • Use of images? Good practice?
  • Enforcement, ethics and engineering
  • Students Frozen mash and tinned mince
    Staff Heres one I used earlier

4
Overall (and ongoing) issues
  • What is collusion? - Collusion,
    collaboration, groupwork - Memorising a shared
    essay? - What punishment for collusion?
  • Scientific literacy - What is science? -
    When does something need to be cited? - Surely
    we know everything now? - Referencing habits -
    body of knowledge v process of study
  • Plagiarism culture v Creative commons mashups?

5
Overall (and ongoing) issues
  • Plagiarism as an excuse to drop essays as they
    are too much like hard work for staff
  • Plagiarism as a tool for asking what is
    learning?
  • Cant prevent plagiarism, can deter it
  • Misunderstanding, misuse, misconduct
    misunderstanding dont know what misuse
    know what, dont know how misconduct know what
    and know how

6
Overall (and ongoing) issues
  • You cannot sift your own course alone to plan
    against plagiarism value of a fresh pair of
    eyes
  • Do we plan our courses or set the outline and
    let it evolve?
  • What do you design in? - academic
    apprenticeship - quick and dirty feedback, 6
    staple-on sheets - activity is essential
  • What do we design out? - Google exists, find
    and display is trivial - tasks that can be
    copied or faked

7
Overall (and ongoing) issues
  • Swapping from faking to making
  • Focus on process not product
  • Requests drafts to be kept
  • Authenticate observe, meta-task, viva
  • Anonymous coursework?
  • Policy evolution? Dept v Institution?
  • Subjectivity of reporting, of guilt, of penalty
  • Turnitin as a training tool?
  • Online tutorial - subject-specific
