Where is the borderline between poor academic practice and plagiarism?
The exercise is intended to be used in the context of a learning unit on academic writing, referencing, academic integrity or introducing research skills.
The students should read the eight specified cases and decide if they think this is a case of serious plagiarism, plagiarism, not plagiarism or if they are not sure. Thereafter the students should discuss their decision with the person sitting next to them. Subsequently the individual decisions can be collected on a flip chart or similar.
