Supporting Academic Integrity through design and the use of text-matching software

Course description

This workshop focuses on strategies in using the University's text matching software. It will provide a demonstration of using the text matching software, and discussion of how to interpret the results.

The workshop will also investigate more general ways of designing out opportunities for academic dishonesty, detecting or deterring plagiarism, and refer to more general university policy on academic integrity.

An alternative to attending a face-to-face workshop on Bedford Park campus is to complete the ‘Exploring academic integrity: A self-paced online tutorial’ in FLO. The estimated time to complete is 60 minutes. For more information, visit the Academic integrity for staff FLO site, and select ‘Online Tutorial’.
