This panel discussion is jointly sponsored by the Office of the Provost and the Academic Integrity Committee. There will be three brief presentations (or "provocations") followed by a respondent and open discussion. The participants are:
Prof. Cheryl Smith, Director of WAC
The author of Plagiarism Pluralized: Identities, Contexts, Pedagogies will consider the slippery practice of working with sources, which can get even the most experienced writers in trouble.
Prof. Ellen Block, ESL Coordinator
This talk will raise questions about plagiarism and the ESL student. What do our students think about plagiarism? When they plagiarize, what are they thinking? Why don't they follow our advice?
Prof. Frank Cioffi, Writing Director
The disconnect between external to the academic culture seems to be growing wider by the day, and on the issue of plagiarism the gulf is becoming especially troublesome. Cioffi will look at some of the issues that this wider culture/academy rift is bringing out.
Prof. Randy B. Hensley, Head of Instruction, Library
