A dramatic strategy against plagiarism: developing information literacy
Plagiarism has been high on the HE agenda for some years and as time
moves on the problem has not disappeared and if anything there appears
to be an increase in concern. The teaching of anti plagiarism should be
part of an information literacy programme, initially introducing
students to the concept of IP and gradually building towards more
in-depth study about the ethical issues surrounding information.
Teaching sessions on anti-plagiarism can be difficult, therefore this
session will look at the development of resources to aid teaching. In
particular, the session analyses the benefits of collaboration with the
enterprise division of the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA
Enterprises Ltd) in creating online resources designed to capture
student interest and shift attitudes on plagiarism. These resources
include a 10 minute movie homage to David Attenborough (where the
species being studied is a student, finding their way through the
academic jungle, avoiding the pitfalls of plagiarism), a sci-fi movie
with an android learning how not to plagiarise (if a robot can learn to
avoid plagiarism, a student can) and a podcast.
The types of messages presented (and the types of messages avoided) in
these anti-plagiarism resources will be analysed and discussed.
Practical considerations are noted for those interested in making their
own IL tools in future.
