    Beyond Plagiarism

    October 25 | 6:00-7:30 | Baytree Conference Center, Cervantes Room

    By now you should know that copying other people's writing without giving them credit is stealing or plagiarism. Pretty obvious or "black and white." However, is copying your own words from a prior assignment plagiarism? Is reusing a paper from another class okay if you make changes? These questions are more "gray" and are more complicated to answer. In this Academic Integrity Workshop, we explore these gray areas through hands on activities and discussion. Be prepared to move, talk, laugh and learn! Sign up here!
