Description

This workshop explored how students currently store, share and use information that they find for their studies. We'll discuss ideas our 'information behaviour' and look at some tools that can help, depending on our ways of working. The team will share their favourite tools and there will be a chance for the ambassadors to share ideas with each other using an online wall. We'll finally think about academic integrity - sharing is important but students must be mindful of plagiarism.

Activities:

- Review of the student ambassadors role and sharing activities
- Information behaviour activity and current techniques for managing, storing, citing information
- Review of tools that can help
- What is plagiarism - a quiz!

Is it plagiarism if you… Copy a paragraph from a text and put it in your essay without putting it in quotation marks and referencing the source? This is probably the most well known example of plagiarism. If you copy exact words, you must enclose them in quotation marks and acknowledge your source in your bibliography.

Is it plagiarism if you… Include some paragraphs from a previous submitted essay that you have written into the one you are currently submitting?

Is it plagiarism if you… Include some paragraphs from a previous submitted essay that you have written into the one you are currently submitting? There is such a thing as self-plagiarism. Using your previous work in your current work is actually plagiarism and is not permitted.

Is it plagiarism if you… Incorporate text from another source, changing one or two words and providing a citation? If you do not intend to quote directly from the source, you must write about it in your own words. Using too many words from the original source is plagiarism, even if you provide a reference.

Is it plagiarism if you… Copy a diagram or data table from a website, providing a reference for the source underneath?

Is it plagiarism if you… Copy a diagram or data table from a website, providing a reference for the source underneath? This isn’t plagiarism. You can include tables, diagrams or images from another source as long as you provide a reference.

Is it plagiarism if you… Talk about the ideas of another author, written in your own words and without referring to the original author? Adaptedfrom“Isitplagiarismquiz”(https://ilrb.cf.ac.uk/plagiarism)

Is it plagiarism? A. Yes B. No C. Unsure Yes No Unsure 33% 33%33%

Is it plagiarism if you… Talk about the ideas of another author, written in your own words and without referring to the original author? Even if you haven’t directly copied their words, you must provide a reference when talking about their ideas. Adaptedfrom“Isitplagiarismquiz”(https://ilrb.cf.ac.uk/plagiarism)

What is plagiarism? • Cutting and pasting from other documents. • Quoting without quotation marks or references. • Paraphrasing without referencing. • Summarising without referencing. • Using an image, source and/or diagram without referencing. • Taking another student’s ideas and passing them off as your own. • Re-cycling your own work which has been submitted for assessment elsewhere. • Collaborating on what should be individual work. • Translating a document from another language.

Why do we need to cite?  To acknowledge the work of other writers  To demonstrate the body of knowledge on which you have based your work  To enable other researchers to trace your sources and lead them on to further information  A standard system of citing ensures an easier system of tracing knowledge more efficiently  If you cite correctly, you don’t need to worry about plagiarism  You are upholding and contributing to academic standards and integrity

Academic writing is about … • Posing a question, dilemma, debate that has not been posed in quite the same way before … • Answering that question, with an answer that has not been constructed in quite the same way before … • Bringing together your ideas with those of others, making connections between things that have not been connected in quite that way before … • Using the work/ideas of others is a crucial element, but must be appropriately acknowledged.

Wrap up and feedback • Between now and the final session, please review Topic 5 of the Library Companion for Students in Moodle and send us any feedback • See you at the final workshop in Summer Term • Continue using the Sharing Wall: http://padlet.com/wall/skiqgvguf4
