Survival of the Fittest: Adapting Methodologies for Successful Plagiarism Discussions

Jennifer Schroeder

Assistant Professor of Biology, Millikin University

We often incorrectly assume that students entering into an undergraduate setting have a firm understanding of plagiarism. In this session, we will illustrate ways to incorporate a more in-depth discussion of plagiarism at the beginning of an undergraduate course, and look at how this can be expanded upon for incoming freshman to incorporate exercises where students write, paraphrase, and peer edit their first college research paper.
