Plagiarism is universally recognized as “an act of fraud that involves both stealing (another’s intellectual property) and lying (implying that the work is one’s own).” Yet, as most educational institutions around the world can attest, plagiarism is becoming increasingly rife, not least because the internet makes cheating as effortless as cutting and pasting.

Tutor Profile

I can educate my learners about the wrongfulness of plagiarism by:

setting a good example i.e. not committing plagiarism myself in the notes or materials that I give them
teaching them the correct way to quote references in their assignments
explaining to them the difference between original work and plagiarised work
severely penalising them whenever they hand in plagiarised work
