Claire Miller, Librarian, South Florida State College, Slaying the Monster: Implementing Integrated and Stand-Alone Plagiarism Workshops
Our college, like many others, had a plagiarism problem. But maybe out students didn't know how to avoid it. Miller designed and delivered a stand alone workshop specifically targeting plagiarism. Preliminary results show a drop in plagiarism rates among students who took the workshop, and the faculty LOVE it. See preliminary results and learn how to slay your own dragons of plagiarism!
