Comparative Analysis of Institutional Policy Definitions of Plagiarism: A Pan-Canadian University Study. Analysis of Plagiarism in the Draft Alberta K-6 Curriculum. Since the draft of Alberta’s new K-6 curriculum was released by Adrianna LaGrange last week it has been under scrutiny.
One of the concerns is plagiarism. Teachers have been posting examples of alleged plagiarism on social media and sending them to me directly for analysis. To be honest, my inbox exploded last week and I can hardly keep up. I lost track of all the messages I received via e-mail and social media, but I estimate that at least 100 examples have been sent to me, some of which are duplicates. Experience: I tracked down my impostor. I’ve been an academic since 2013.
I am a senior lecturer in art history, and director of US studies at the University of Essex. What drove me towards an academic career was my interest in tattooing. 40 University of Alberta computing science students caught cheating. The University of Alberta has charged 40 students from two introductory computing science courses with cheating.
Many of the students were enrolled with an online tutoring company, an operation the university describes as a cheating service. In a Feb. 28 letter to computing science students, the university said the students, from the fall term, "face significant sanctions. " The U of A warned it would continue to screen all student assignment submissions and "any students found guilty of cheating will be charged. " "I think as long as we have education, we're going to have people who are going to try and game the system and we just have to keep up with them," said Deb Eerkes, the university's director of student conduct and accountability.
How the Baby Yoda Crochet Pattern is Making Us Talk About Copyright - Fiberly. Viral Feminist Campaign Plagiarizes Student art. Pomona Lake’s piece (left) and the Terre des Femmes poster (right).
Do great minds think alike, or does a new feminist poster series about how women are judged by their appearance and attire rip off a student project on the same topic? A new campaign designed by Theresa Wlokka and Frida Regenheim of the Miami Ad School, Hamburg, for German woman’s rights non-profit Terre des Femmes is strikingly similar to Judgments, a photograph by Pomona Lake (formerly known as Rosea Lake) that went viral back in 2013 (see When Is Artist-on-Artist Theft Okay? Inside the African essay factories that churn out university coursework for 115,000 cheating British students every year. Kenyan academics are working gruelling 12-hour shifts writing essays for hundreds of thousands of British and American students, a MailOnline investigation reveals.
Slaving away in 'essay factories' in Nairobi, the highly educated experts earn as little as a dollar an hour while their millionaire bosses cream off the profits – and cheating Western teenagers take the credit. The essays are delivered anonymously by email, on time and free from plagiarism, with higher prices charged for a 2:1 or a First. The "Bulte Report" Redux: Canadian Heritage Committee Releases Embarrassingly One-Sided Remuneration Models Study. The Canadian government announced its plans for a copyright review in December 2017, tasking the Standing Committee on Industry, Science and Technology with the review.
That report has been in the drafting stage for several months and is expected before the summer. In an effort to dampen concerns that Canadian Heritage would play a diminished role in the review, the responsible ministers asked the Industry committee to ask the Heritage committee to conduct a review on remuneration models for artists and creative industries. The formal request asked the Standing Committee on Canadian Heritage to “call upon the expertise of a broad range of stakeholders impacted by copyright to ensure a holistic understanding of the issues at play.”
Rather than providing the recommendations directly to the Industry committee as requested, the Heritage committee and chair Julie Dabrusin, a Liberal MP, chose instead to release its full report today. Plagiarism: How to avoid it. Does the Use of Information Technology in Education Encourage Cheating? - Community - Utne Reader. In The War on Learning (MIT Press, 2014) Elizabeth Losh examines current efforts to “reform” the use of information technology in education, particularly in higher education.
She finds that many technological solutions to educational problems fail because they treat education as a product rather than a process, and proposes six basic principles of digital learning integral to successful university-based initiatives. The following excerpt comes from Chapter 1, “What They Learn in College.”
What the New Sokal Hoax Reveals About Academia. Further reading: It’s surprisingly easy to get a fake paper published in an academic journal Next, Sokal sent off this jabber to Social Text, an academic journal that was, at the time, a leading intellectual forum for famous scholars including Edward Said, Oskar Negt, Nancy Fraser, Étienne Balibar, and Jacques Rancière.* It was published.
In the eyes of his supporters, what came to be known as the Sokal Hoax seemed to prove the most damning charges that critics of postmodernism had long leveled against it. Postmodern discourse is so meaningless, they claimed, that not even “experts” can distinguish between people who make sincere claims and those who compose deliberate gibberish.
