MET College Ed Tech Colloquium Series: Deterring & Detecting Plagiarism

On Wednesday, September 27th, Metropolitan College hosted the second in an ongoing series of presentations on the integration of various educational technology tools and techniques in online, blended, and face to face classes. This series has been organized by a group consisting of staff from Metropolitan College departments of Educational Technology & Innovation and the Office of Distance Education. Specifically, this session looked at a variety of methods and means for deterring and detecting plagiarism. We want to thank all who attended. If you were not able to attend the event, please feel free to watch the recording or view the slides from the presentation.

The presentation covered a range of methods, from more traditional strategies and best practices, to a demonstration of the Turnitin tool, its latest incarnation Turnitin Feedback Studio, and its integration into Blackboard. The questions and discussion that followed illustrated how important a topic this is for us to be focusing on at this time. Special thanks to Andy Abrahamson, Yuvaraj Gunasekaran, Emily Heffernan Helter, Dan Hillman, and Shannon Rose McAuliffe for presenting on such an important topic.

Be on the lookout for an announcement about October’s installment of this series on the topic of tools and techniques for incorporating video into your courses.

All presentations take place in Room 109 of the Fuller Building, 808 Commonwealth Avenue. Attendees who cannot come in person can attend virtually. Please direct any questions you may have about this series to Emily Heffernan Helter, Assistant Director of Educational Technology and Production, in the Office of Distance Education eheff@bu.edu.
