For what is now the the third year in a row, I’m very happy to announce that Plagiarism Today is sponsoring Turnitin’s Plagiarism Education Week.
Plagiarism Education Week is a virtual conference that takes place in April every year. This year it will be from April 20-24 and will feature 7 different talks, each 45-minutes long, from experts in academic integrity from all over the world.
This year’s talks include the following (list taken directly from press release):
- Changing Culture to Promote Integrity: Why Progress Is Possible with David Callahan, author of The Cheating Culture: Why More Americans Are Doing Wrong to Get Ahead
- A Student-Centered Culture: Promoting Integrity One Conversation at a Time with Michael Goodwin, Academic Integrity Coordinator at Kennesaw State University
- Narcissism and Extrinsic Values: Understanding Student Trends that Impact Plagiarism and Cheating with Jean Twenge, author of The Narcissism Epidemic: Living in the Age of Entitlement
- Wikipedia in the Classroom: Authority, Trust, and Information Literacy with LiAnna Davis, Director of Programs at Wiki Education Foundation
- Improvisation and Plagiarism: Fostering a Culture of Creativity with Teresa Fishman, Director of the International Center for Academic Integrity (ICAI)
- Decisions on Deadline: A 21st Century Gaming Approach to Teach Plagiarism and Ethics with Samantha Grant and Brittney Shepherd, co-producers of A Fragile Trust
- The Cultural Implications of Contract Cheating with Tricia Bertram Gallant, Director of Academic Integrity at UC San Diego
All of the talks are free though pre-registration is required to attend. So, if you think you might be interested in one or more, go ahead and register today, not just to save your spot, but to be reminded before it begins.
All in all, it is an exciting and packed lineup. I’ve had the chance to see many of these people speak before at the International Plagiarism Conference and am excited to see what they’re working on. I’ll be attending as many of the talks that I can so, if you’re available, come stop by.
Hope to see some of you at the webcasts!
