Academic Integrity Resources

As a follow-up to our Turnitin webinar, I wanted to make everyone aware of some resources available  on the topic of academic integrity. The following books are in the CTL collection:

Originality, Imitation, and Plagiarism: Teaching Writing in the Digital Age, edited by Caroline Eisner and Martha Vicinus is a collection of essays that address the challenges that digital technologies have brought to research and writing. [CTL PN167 .075 2008]

My Word! Plagiarism and College Culture by Susan D. Blum explores why plagiarism is on the rise in colleges, examines student and faculty attitudes towards intellectual property, and suggests ways to address this troubling issue. [CTL PN167 .B48 2009]

These books were recently added to the library collection. They are located in the Curriculum Library.

Pedagogy, Not Policing: Positive Approaches to Academic Integrity at the University, edited by Tyra Twomey, Holly White, and Ken Sagendorf, “asks and addresses such questions as what academic integrity (AI) is, what roles it plays in our colleges and universities, whom it serves, and what practices nourish or jeopardize it.” (publisher)[CurrLib LB3609 .P36 2009]

Psychology of Academic Cheating, edited by Eric M. Anderman, Tamera B. Murdock provides “research on the motivational aspects of cheating, and what research has shown to prevent cheating is discussed across different student populations, ages and settings.” (publisher)[CurrLib LB3609 .P79 2007]

Student Plagiarism in an Online World: Problems and Solutions, edited by Tim Roberts “describes the legal and ethical issues surrounding plagiarism, the tools and techniques available to combat the spreading of this problem, and real-life situational examples to further the understanding of the scholars, practitioners, educators, and instructional designers who will find this book an invaluable resource.” (publisher) [CurrLib PN167 .S78 2008]

The following video is available through Films On Demand on the library website.

Plagiarism 2.0: Information Ethics in the Digital Age (19:00)

“For a generation raised on the ideology of “open source” and the ability to quickly cut and paste, the concept of plagiarism may seem foreign or passé. And that, of course, can lead to trouble. This video examines the behaviors that constitute plagiarism, their consequences, and the best ways to avoid them.” (publisher)
