CCCOnline will offer another real-time Plagiarism session for Students in Elluminate on Wednesday, March 14th at noon. I’ve included the announcement that will appear on the Student News blog.

If this topic is especially important for learners in your cours(s), here’s an opportunity to offer “extra-credit” carrots to them :).

Best, Alice

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, March 14 th, 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 up to 50 "seats" available for each session and these are available on a first-come, first-served basis. CCCOnline will offer additional seminars if there is sufficient demand.

There are two steps to joining the meeting.
