Workshop: Preventing Plagiarism

On Wednesday 11 March, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. in SS1339, the Faculty of Arts Teaching + Learning Committee will host a workshop on Preventing Plagiarism, presented by Annette Timm (Department of History) and Virginia Tumasz (Associate Dean, Undergraduate Programs & Student Affairs).

The consequences of academic misconduct, including plagiarism, are clear and explicit in the university calendar. One role of the Faculty’s associate deans is to hear each case and, if it’s valid, to issue both course and disciplinary sanctions. But equal emphasis can and should be placed on prevention as on treatment — namely, on educating students on the meaning and implications of plagiarism, and the research habits that can prevent it.

  • These are cross-disciplinary workshops that will directly affect your course designs and delivery. Each one have an immediate and concrete impact on your teaching in every department and discipline in the Faculty of Arts.
  • Registration is required. Most will have pre-workshop questions or even exercises for registrants to complete or consider before attending.
  • Materials and resources will be available — normally here on this website — for those who want to follow up with them, and for those unable to attend.
  • A new feature for 2014-15 is formal recognition of those who attend three or more workshops in an academic year, or who present in any workshop. A letter from the Faculty of Arts will testify to your professional development in merit, promotion and tenure applications.
