Departing from Punishing Plagiarism: Toward Addressing Ineffective Source Use Pedagogically
A video-based workshop prepared for university/college writing instructors whose classes include second language (L2) writers.
The main objectives of the workshop and provided materials are to:
- help teachers understand the complexity surrounding source use, especially in the case of second language writers;
- problematize the punitive approach to dealing with ineffective textual borrowing;
- discuss the spectrum of textual borrowing strategies in student writing, ranging from direct, unattributed copying to effective textual borrowing;
- provide teachers with effective and non-punitive ways of responding to problematic textual borrowing.
