Escalation in Digital Sleuthing Raises Quandary in Classrooms – The Chronicle of Higher Education

Matt Ramsey, chair of the English department, passed on this link to me:

Escalation in Digital Sleuthing Raises Quandary in Classrooms – Technology – The Chronicle of Higher Education.

The article ties in well to our webinar for Turnitin on Wednesday, November 9th. It discusses how anti-plagiarism software can help students understand how to correctly cite and paraphrase material.  The article also discusses some of the controversies surrounding anti-plagiarism software as well some larger issues in student research and citations from The Citation Project.

I encourage you to read it before coming to the webinar, as it will make for rich discussion around this important topic.
