Turnitin, Plagiarism and Contract Cheating

This session will provide hands-on training for enabling and reviewing Turnitin originality report. During this process, you will gain an understanding of how Turnitin works and its limitations. You will also hear about the best ways to use it with students to improve their understanding and reduce opportunities to plagiarise. There will also be a discussion around the research emerging in the area of contract teaching where students pay others to complete their coursework.

Here are some helpful resources about setting up Turnitin 

This is a really useful resource about contract cheating.
