Avoiding Plagiarism Ann Barlow Ketso is a hands-on kit for creative groupwork Aims of the session • To gain an understanding of plagiarism • To consider why people plagiarise • To identify ways to avoid plagiarism • To learn from each other How Ketso works Instructions & Clarifications Ketso uses ‘leaves’ to capture people’s ideas Write or draw one idea per leaf, write so others can read Always use the ‘magic pens’ provided If an idea doesn’t fit – use more than one leaf! Coloured leaves for different questions (write on the coloured side) Think then share - time on your OWN to develop ideas before sharing & discussing them Each stage lasts about 10 minutes Bell to move to next stage – first ring person talking has a moment to finish what saying Avoiding plagiarism– preview of what the different colours mean • What is plagiarism ? • Why does plagiarism happen? • How can we avoid plagiarism? First stage – What is plagiarism? Brown Leaves • What do you understand by plagiarism? Think about it in different contexts. • How might you (or your supervisor) recognise it? Now unfold the felt Move the centrepiece to the centre of the felt, this is the focus of the workshop Branches provide themes (There are blanks for ideas that don’t fit these themes and new, emerging themes) Branches • • • • • Experimental work Academic papers and communications Coding Online communication and social media Oral presentation • Blank –for themes that emerge from discussion / cross cutting ideas Take it in turns to read out your ideas – one person reads one idea at a time… … going around the circle. Place leaves on the felt as you read them out Discuss the ideas after they are all on the felt Point leaves at branches Cluster similar ideas Plagiarism – University of Huddersfield • Reproduction of published or unpublished (eg. work of another student or your own work) material without acknowledgement of the author or source; • Presenting information from electronic sources such as the internet without acknowledgement of the source; • Paraphrasing by, for instance, substituting a few words or phrases or altering the order of presentation of another person's work, or linking unacknowledged sentences or phrases with words of one's own (University of Huddersfield Students’ Handbook of Regulations) Next stage – Why plagiarise?
