"Dealing with Plagiarism: Pedagogy or Punishment," Rebecca Jackson, ISU Library. Seminar options: on-site or online (webinar). Preregistration is required. Register on Access Plus under Employee HRS Course Listings.

This seminar will combine presentation and discussion. Plagiarism seems to have intensified on campuses, especially with the rise of the internet as a major source of information. We will learn about the actual data on plagiarism, as well as the various ways that plagiarism is defined in the literature on the issue. Most researchers agree that plagiarism is still a very serious form of academic misconduct; however, it is usually categorized as intentional or unintentional, with punishment assigned on a range that is dependent on the intention of the plagiarizer and the number of instances a student has plagiarized.

The presentation will include the reasons for plagiarism, and the various means of dealing with the problem in your classes. Small group discussion amongst the participants will focus on concrete examples of plagiarism instances and how they were treated. Participants will leave the seminar with, among other things, a better understanding of why plagiarism occurs among our students and new ways of dealing with the behavior.

All faculty, staff and students are welcome to attend. Registration is required through AccessPlus. Contact Jodi Graden,
