What is plagiarism anyway? Why is it important? How do you avoid it? Why would you want to? What will happen if you don’t? Plagiarism comes in many forms and is often done inadvertently due to inexperience and not knowing what plagiarism actually is. This virtual session will answer these questions and teach practical ways to identify and avoid plagiarism. Participants using iClickers will learn what plagiarism actually is and how to avoid it with paraphrasing, summarizing, direct quotations and citations.
