Plagiarism Today Sponsors Plagiarism Education Week

Plagiarism Today Sponsors Plagiarism Education Week

Plagiarism Education Week LogoFor the second year in a row, I’m proud to announce that Plagiarism Today is sponsoring Turnitin‘s Plagiarism Education Week for 2014.

The event will take place from April 21-25 and will feature a series of five webcasts from a variety of experts on the topic of plagiarism, in particular as it pertains to academic writing, all of it along the theme of “From Copying to Critical Thinking”.

Those lectures include (list taken from the press release):

New this year is a contest in which four of the speakers, Fox, Kessinger, Velasco and Wick are vying to be selected for a paid trip to the 6th International Integrity and Plagiarism Conference, which I will also be attending (more on that later).

For more information about the event or to reregister for one of the webcasts, each of which will last about 45 minutes, you can check out the Plagiarism Education Week page or the press release.

Hope to see some of you at the webcasts!

Disclosure: I am a paid consultant for iThenticate, which is owned by iParadigms, which also owns Turnitin.
