How to avoid accidental plagiarism

How to avoid accidental plagiarism (online session)

‘Plagiarism is…the unacknowledged use of someone's work’ and can have serious consequences to your academic studies (Pears and Shields, 2022).

Unfortunately, plagiarism can accidently happen to us all if we poorly acknowledge sources, inadvertently quote another person’s work, or even just take poor quality notes. This session will point out some of the blunders to avoid and help you understand the importance of good referencing, paraphrasing, summarising and give note-taking tips.

This session is not subject specific but will give general advice that applies across subject areas, although the session will employ the Harvard referencing system to explain referencing techniques.

If you need further information or any adjustments to fully access this session, please contact in advance.
