The lecture content of the Avoiding Plagiarism live webinar, certificate course, and Canvas module is all the same, but the assessment differs between the delivery methods. It is up to instructors as to how they would like to incorporate the content, but here are some things to consider:
Please continue down the page to learn more about each delivery method to choose what works best for you and your students. You can contact Liz Svoboda with any questions.
The library offers Avoiding Plagiarism webinars during the Fall and Winter semesters. The Winter 2023 sessions will follow this schedule:
After each session attendance and review question participation records will be shared with those instructors that students in attendance name.
The Canvas module includes four videos with embedded check point questions, a 20 point review quiz, and helpful resources linked throughout the module. The review quiz is set as a "practice quiz" so it will NOT automatically be added to an instructor's gradebook. This module is an OER with a CC BY-SA 4.0 license, meaning that you are able to adapt the content to your needs.
To add the module to your Canvas course.
It is a good idea to check for updates to the Canvas modules you import. We review the content and update about once a year, typically over the summer.
If you don’t want to add the module to your Canvas course and if students are unable to attend a live webinar, the self-paced certificate course is an option. Hosted through the UM-Flint Professional Development storefront, students will need to self-enroll, then complete the lectures and review quiz in order to earn the certificate. There is no cost to enroll in this course and the certificate expires after 18 months.
Students can easily share their certificate with you as a PDF, but for detailed information about student participation, please contact Liz Svoboda.
