Alison Black – Senior Teacher (Blended Learning) – Hawthorn-Melbourne
In this session, Alison Black will share the ‘tricks’ that students use to fool Turnitin. Turnitin does not detect plagiarism, but instead checks the student’s work against a database for similarity to other students’ work and flags it for the marker to review.
Alison will also emphasise the need for a culture that sees Turnitin as an educative tool that can help students improve their writing, e.g., paraphrasing, rather than a punitive tool, and will share marking criteria and lesson ideas with this approach in mind.
