Dealing with plagiarism
Plagiarism is wholly unacceptable in an educational context. When carried out with the intention to pass the work of others off as your own it is fraudulent; when done without that intent it is lazy or negligent. This module looks at how to ensure that learners understand the boundary between acceptable quotation/citation and plagiarism and are aware of the consequences. It also looks at how robust detection and prevention processes can be adopted and shared across the organisation.
This module will help you to support and guide other practitioners in helping their learners avoid plagiarism.

One of the ways in which teachers can help their students avoid plagiarism is to lead by example. So often teachers fail to provide references for quotes or images in their class presentations. Report this review
Straightforward enough, but again some good links. The 'Creative Commons' website and concept is very interesting..but surprisingly not that user-friendly to use at first. Worth persevering with. Report this review
