Working Together to Reduce Plagiarism and Promote Academic Integrity: A Collaborative Initiative at Leicester

chapter
posted on 2011-02-23, 16:32 authored by Joanne Louise Badge, Nadya Yakovchuk, Alysoun Hancock, Aaron Porter
This staff student collaboration arose from a staff-led research project that examined the potential for an American-style honor code system to reduce plagiarism in higher education. This system promotes the positive benefits of good scholarship, encourages students to take responsibility for their own learning and is based on a community of trust between staff and students. Students’ Union Education Officers, student course representatives and academic staff worked together to re-frame advice given to students on plagiarism in a more positive light. This ongoing collaboration has resulted in joint recommendations from staff and students to the institution on how to reduce plagiarism and promote a culture of academic integrity.
