Course description

Participants discuss the concept of plagiarism using current definitions, frameworks, and writing pedagogy. They examine the relationship between culture and plagiarism, and the developmental stages of L1 and L2 writers are explored in order to contextualize phases like “synonym replacement,” “patchwriting,” and “too-close paraphrasing.” Key concepts like intentionality and evidence of learning are also considered.
