Strategies and Tools to Avoid Plagiarism Workshop


The purpose of this workshop is to learn tools to avoid plagiarism in order to write with integrity.


Expectations and Standards

In order for the workshop to function well, the following rules and expectations must be respected and observed by all students.

  1. Punctuality. This is very important because this meeting is participatory and it shows respect for everyone else in the room. 
  2. No cell phones, laptops, or other communication devices should be on during the workshop. Staying present to other individuals without external distraction is fundamental to ensuring that all members have the opportunity to learn from one another.
  3. Confidentiality. Although individuals are not obligated to share personal information about themselves or their violation, the workshop is designed as a safe space wherein individuals can freely discuss information that is considered personal and/or private. Thus, by participating in this workshop, you may learn confidential and personal information about other students. Communicating such information in any way that may be attributed to an individual is not permitted. However, you should feel free to share what you learn or insights you've gained.
  4. Participation and Respect. The goal is not to speak for the sake of speaking, but rather to enrich the learning process through consistent participation. You will find that if you are open to participation, you will feel activated to discuss various topics at various times in an instinctive manner. Participation also relies on the expectation of respect for others ideas, opinions, and values. Such respect may come in the form of sharing time in discussions for all individuals to speak, as well as listening and learning from differing viewpoints.
