“Best Practices and Preparing to Use TurnItIn”

This workshop will explore the first steps of using TurnItIn:  designing effective assignments, preventing plagiarism, and using the assignment and assessment tools in Canvas.  We will also cover the issues of ethics and authorship in using TurnItIn through the UW license.  Instructors are encouraged to bring a writing/research assignment from one of their courses.

Presenters:  Tyler Fox (UW-IT Learning Technologies; John Holmes (University Libraries); Amanda Hornby (University Libraries); Katie Malcolm (CTL)

“Setting Up TurnItIn and a Report from the Classroom”

This workshop will explore the logistics of using TurnItIn, from turning it on in Canvas to interpreting and using the reports effectively.  Geography faculty member Joe Hannah shares his experiences and lends expertise on how to use — and how not to use — TurnItIn as a tool for enhancing student learning.

Presenters:  Tyler Fox (UW-IT Learning Technologies); Joe Hannah (Geography); Katie Malcolm (CTL)

On-site registration for the November 4 workshop is available.  Interested persons should go directly to OUGL ALC 136
