By hook or by crook? Issues and solutions in addressing unfair practice

Swansea University
3 May 2011 10:00-16:00

This one-day, interactive event will provide opportunities to explore the perennial difficulty of unfair practice by students, and in particular plagiarism, focusing on some of the underlying issues and highlighting potential approaches to tackle the problem. Drawing on the experiences, practice and/or research of colleagues in a variety of roles, the event will centre around four key areas:

  • Assessment strategies to minimise unfair practice possibilities;
  • Supporting students’ academic skills development;
  • Improving and implementing policies for unacceptable academic practice;
  • Using text-matching tools effectively.

The aim is for delegates to consider, discuss and refine ideas for enhancing their personal and institutional practice in this area drawing on insights emerging from the event.
