Inve. Stigate: Academic Honesty How do I know this? I copied the definition from the Compact Oxford English Dictionary online and pasted it into this presentation http: //www. askoxford. com/results/? view=dict&freesearch=plagiarism&branch=13842570&textsearchtype=exact
Inve. Stigate: Academic Honesty Is this OK? It is, as long as I make it clear that I am using someone else’s words or ideas and provide the details of where I found (sourced) the information
Inve. Stigate: Academic Honesty Plagiarism is also… Presenting any piece of work as your own that doesn’t have original content in (for example, you have just presented a series of other peoples ideas and opinions without adding any original thoughts or ideas of your own) (I didn’t copy this, I wrote it myself having read a number of different articles and websites about plagiarism)
Inve. Stigate: Academic Honesty Is this OK? Again yes – as long as I say that I based my ideas on reading the following websites http: //ed. ted. com/lessons/the-punishable-perils-ofplagiarism-melissa-huseman-d-annunzio#watch http: //www. etsu. edu/uged/etsu 1000/documents/Plagiaris m_Lesson_Plan. pdf http: //www. findingdulcinea. com/guides/Education/Plagiaris m-Prevention. html http: //pages. turnitin. com/rs/iparadigms/images/Tur nitin_White.
