Fall 2012 Action Reads


Originality, Imitation, and Plagiarism: Teaching Writing in the Digital Age

Plagirism is oftentimes an uncomfortable topic in the academic world, but it’s also a unique, necessary, hot-button topic that involves student creativity, imitation, course design practices and pedagogy. In this collection of essays, editors Martha Vicinus and Caroline Eisner take the discussion farther than the familiar “Don’t do it” tagline by addressing a bevy of underlying issues and related instructional practices. Jeanne Smith, Director of the Writing Commons, will facilitate these sessions and discuss how faculty practices and student behaviors influence the writing process.

Thursday: October 18th & November 1st, 15th, 29th
Time: 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Place: Writing Commons, 4th Floor of the Library
