Note - for technical reasons I am unable to upload files to these tutorials at the moment. I will use links until the problem is solved.

Any students having trouble accessing presentations should bring a USB flash drive to me for copying of actual files.

 

Tutorial Aspects:

  1. the definition of plagiarism
  2. types of plagiarism
  3. consequences of committing plagiarism

You can stop reading / watching when the presentation starts discussing ways to avoid plagiarism. We will look at citation; paraphrasing, quotation and summary separately.

Focus on the tutorial aspects.
