Strategies for Preventing Student Plagiarism

Published November 6, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

Dr Laurence Nixon, Dawson College

While interviewing Lawrence Nixon about his use of the Shared Drive at Dawson College, he mentioned the document we are reproducing below on plagiarism. Dr Nixon originally presented this information at an information session at the college. This is an example of the quality of information that circulates in the collegial system often without wider distribution. Profweb is pleased to be helping to remedy this situation.

Published September 17, 2007  |  Multidisciplinary

APOP

In our professional lives, e-mail, word processing and other timesaving computer applications have become ubiquitous. A spreadsheet has become a 'must' for organizing numeric input within tables, conceptual planning is done with schematic planners, and visual information is presented thanks to digital processing. As labour-efficient as these applications seem, however, their learning curve represents an enormous amount of time. Wouldn't it be wonderful if this initial investment could be shortened by profiting from the experiences of others?

Active Learning

Jean Desjardins Learning Technology Advisor, Collège Sainte-Anne
Isabelle Senécal Director of Teaching, of Pedagogical Innovation and of International Development, Collège Sainte-Anne

The active learning methods have in common of placing the students in the middle of the learning process. Their teachers can then also think about giving them a role in the planning of the evaluation. Active learning is inspired by real-life contexts that are meaningful for the students, which can increase their level of motivation for the tasks that are suggested to them. It encourages durable learnings rather than using only their short-term memory.
