4. Understanding Plagiarism
In this workshop, we’ll discuss the causes of plagiarism. We'll also develop strategies for helping students learn to use source materials and for structuring writing assignments in ways that prevent plagiarism by mitigating the impulse to cheat.
5. Effective Feedback
What kinds of feedback work best to improve student writing? Do I have to “correct” every “mistake”? How do I help students without overwhelming and discouraging them—and consuming too much of my own valuable time? If you’ve struggled with these and other questions, join us for this workshop.
