Plagiarism Prevention Presentation on SlideShare

I know you can download the PowerPoint from here (you can also download it from SlideShare, but I like the fact that with SlideShare you can review the whole .ppt via their service w/out having to download the file.

It doesn't hurt that you can also subscribe, comment, tag, etc. with SlideShare

Plagiarism Prevention for Research Projects

Just a quick note to let everyone know that there's a new presentation in town. Plagiarism Prevention for Research Projects, I'd consider it "step 2" in the CyberCheats chain. CyberCheats is a much better presentation for addressing the general "how to" of Plagiarism with some general ideas for prevention, the Prevention lecture is more of a "how to" on Plagiarism Prevention focusing on topics like Academic Integrity policies and assignment design to make plagiarism much more difficult.

Hip Hop Beats and Plagiarism


I love this:
"Was Foucault a plagiarist? Hip-hop sampling and academic citation" by M. Hess, published in Computers and Composition Vol. 23 Issue 3

Check it out...I'll bet it works

Annual Update :-) I'm not much of a blogger.

Trust me, I have stuff to say, just logging in to anything to say it seems onerous...just call me lazy :-)

New to the issue of plagiarism? I hope not, the kids are getting better all the time...and with increased course loads for teachers and a litigious society they're able to get away with it all the more.

Indication of how bad it is...just go to Google, search on plagiarism and switch to news...there's always something...and it's only the tip of the iceberg

So I just got hired...

To teach amongst other classes "Searching and Evaluating Electronic Information" at a local got me to thinking about the challenges of evaluating information. As a librarian at one time I felt very comfortable saying this or that was a reputable this point I don't know if I can be sure...with major national newspapers having issues with Plagiarism, famous authors being cited for plagiarism, people plagiarizing other opinions and passing them off as truth (which inadvertently makes something truth), I think this might be a more difficult class than I thought...
