EdTech: 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.


Addressing the issue of plagiarism


After completing this module you will:

- be able to advise and guide learners and fellow practitioners on avoiding plagiarism and associated practices
- introduce systems and robust mechanisms to detect and respond to plagiarism
- promote shared practice around the issues of plagiarism

Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the EdTech component - C1a : Research and employability

  • Use digital technologies (e.g. blogs, diaries, planning tools) to allow learners to plan their own learning.
  • Use digital technologies to allow learners to collect evidence and record progress, e.g. audio or video recordings, photos.
  • Use digital technologies (e.g. ePortfolios, learners' blogs) to allow learners to record and showcase their work.
  • Use digital technologies to enable learners to reflect on and self-assess their learning process.

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.

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.

Our Response: Your comments are appreciated and will be helpful in serving and building our community of practice.
