  •             explore ways to help students avoid plagiarism
  •             discuss the use and limitations of electronic tools for detecting and deterring student plagiarism

Participants will be guided to experience, in a step-by-step manner, how to make use of electronic tools to check students’ work for suspected cases of plagiarism.
