“4 Secrets for Outsmarting Plagiarizers” presentation and webinar

While so-called detection services like Turnitin help catch plagiarism, students are getting better at beating them, using various techniques that you might not know. Whenever Turnitin similarity score percentages seem suspiciously low, it’s handy to know techniques for spotting and addressing plagiarism. There are even measures you can take to plagiarism-proof your assignments!

The Office of Faculty Development and Enrichment invites all faculty to attend “4 Secrets for Outsmarting Plagiarizers” in-person from noon to 1 p.m. on Wednesday, November 29, in Saint Edward Hall, Room 102, and online during the same time.

In this session, you will learn:

  • the mechanics of Turnitin (and other similar detection services);
  • sneaky student techniques to outsmart Turnitin;
  • techniques for catching and addressing sneaky plagiarism in your class; and
  • techniques for plagiarism-proofing your class assignments.
