Assignments Week: Day 1 Plagiarism

It's Semester 2 - that usually means more original research and projects!  Instead of getting book-lists from your lecturer, you might have been asked to research a topic...  

This week, the blog is looking at how to find and reference information for your assignments and projects. 

We will start off by looking at plagiarism.  Learning to recognise and avoid plagiarism is important for all students.  Before you can avoid plagiarism, you will need to know exactly what it is!  Have a look at this short tutorial.  At the end, you will know:
  • how to define plagiarism
  • why understanding plagiarism is an important part of college life
  • the type of information that can be plagiarised
