Live Student Workshop on Avoiding Plagiarism Feb. 14

Student Services has provided this announcement for CCCOnline Students for the Eluminate Workshop on Avoiding Plagiarism Next Wed., Feb. 14th, at
noon. It was sent to the student list this afternoon. (Thanks, Jennifer Frank!).

Feel free to promote it to learners in your courses (could even have an extra-credit carrot attached!).

Key logistics you may want to stress: A person needs to check out the Elluminate site and do the tune-up before noon on the 14th. There is a limitation of 50 seats--so it's first come first serve as far as login to the conference. (No password required!).

Best, Alice

From Jennifer--

Avoiding Plagiarism Potholes: The Ethical and Correct Use of Sources

Every college student knows plagiarism is against the rules. It’s also very easy to do – even unintentionally! CCCOnline will show you how to recognize and stay away from plagiarism during a live, interactive, online student workshop:

Wednesday, Feb. 14, from noon to 12:45 p.m.
A repeat session is scheduled for Wednesday, March 14 from noon to 12:45 p.m.
Additional sessions will be offered if there is sufficient demand

Avoiding Plagiarism Potholes is a 45-minute online seminar during which students can discuss three key issues with moderator Alice.Bedard-Voorhees:
What is plagiarism?
What are the consequences of plagiarism?
What are some basic practices to avoid plagiarism in using sources created by others? (Best Practices include resources).

There are only 50 "seats" available for each session and both are on a first-come, first-served basis. CCCOnline will offer additional seminars if there is sufficient demand.

There are two simple steps to join the meeting.
