The TTU Library and the Ethics Center invite you to the first Coffee Break Ethics Series for the Fall 2014 semester. The workshop is free and open to all.
Have you copied and pasted text from the internet for your assignments, worried if you paraphrased correctly, or failed to cite a source? Because scholarship requires high standards of integrity, this Coffee Break Ethics Series will help you identify plagiarism and provide techniques to paraphrase properly. A short demonstration of two online services offered by the Library – iThenticate and Turnitin – will show you how to check manuscripts for potential plagiarism. Following the demonstration are breakout sessions that help you sharpen your writing skills and avoid this common, often inadvertent, form of academic dishonesty.
* The event is free and open to all. Registration is recommended: http://www.tlpd.ttu.edu
* This session will meet part of the NSF requirements for RCR Training.
Coffee and pastries provided.
