28: Plagiarism and Pedagogy

Dr Roger Davis joins The Academic Citizen to discuss plagiarism and its impact. The problem of plagiarism is complicated by students’ lack of knowledge about appropriate citation methods and the importance of enhancing critical thinking while still encouraging creative thought.

Davis delves into the nuances of sharing ideas and knowledge versus repeating the academic research of others without providing proper credit, and explores how institutions have dealt with cases of plagiarism.

We also chat some students about their own attitudes to and experiences with plagiarism.
