This presentation illustrates how Turnitin can be used as a device to teach students about what plagiarism is and how they can avoid it. Other tips on working with students to improve referencing and citation will also be discussed.

Students are asked to submit work to Turnitin as a formative exercise. Any errors in their academic citation practices can then be highlighted to them in class.


Formative work can be submitted using Turnitin to highlight to students how to avoid making mistakes in future with their citation practices.

If this is done early in their programme of study it will have maximum impact.
