Colleagues may have identified issues of plagiarism among CityU students from works they have submitted. In recent years, the introduction of plagiarism prevention packages, Turnitin and SafeAssign, has assisted both teachers and students to examine the matter. At institutional level, an online course on academic integrity is developed to educate all CityU students. In this STEP session, Dr John Barrie, founder of Turnitin, will talk about the role of developing technologies in influencing the styles and patterns inherent in academic writing. He will discuss the opportunities for revised and robust assessment practice in response to the wide range of rapidly evolving internet content and other electronic resources that can be used in assessment representation. Dr Theresa Kwong at the Education Development Office will provide audience a preview of the academic integrity online course.
