讲座题目:Plagiarism and source use: What do we really know?

主讲人: Diane Pecorari

主办单位:外语学院英文系

讲座对象:外语学院教师,硕博士研究生等

Abstract: Plagiarism is both a source of frustration to teachers and a topic which has gained a great deal of research attention. Because intertextuality is a pervasive feature of academic writing, students cannot avoid plagiarism unless they have the ability to use sources effectively. This talk will gather summary what we know about plagiarism and source use, identify questions which still need answers, and will discuss how research findings on this topic can inform our teaching.
