"I Plagiarized My Child's Birth": From Extreme Plagiarism to Contextualized Understanding

A Plagiarism Education Week Webcast

When a student plagiarized a narrative of the birth of her son, English professor Audrey Wick realized a disconnect: students aren't understanding the risk of non-original writing. Using the pedagogical concept of contextualization, Wick now aims to get her students to understand the larger message that plagiarism sends--and how it affects more than just them.

Join us for a discussion of how you and your institution can decrease plagiarism, increase student accountability, and improve critical thinking through contextualized examples.
