What are you looking forward to the most with URKUND PEPP talks?
The whole speaker line-up is interesting and varied, with presenters from across Europe. As well as keeping up to date with the latest findings on plagiarism, I see the PEPP event as an excellent opportunity for discussion with like-minded practitioners.
I'm very interested in improving university teaching and how we support students with academic writing and those areas are covered by the other speakers. I've also been doing work recently on how to engage students with academic integrity. So much of that goes beyond the student themselves and into their wider community and so I'm really keen to see what Pablo San Roman has been doing.
It should be an excellent event and I'm looking forward to my visit to Stockholm in August.
“We’ve definitely noticed an increasing incidence of plagiarism since URKUND was introduced, and previously there was of course a high level of undetected incidence. It was far too time consuming for the teaching staff to carry out their own plagiarism checks. The automation has led to a bigger haul of perpetrators,” says Joshua Kragh Bruhn, Information specialist at CBS.
“The preventive objective of plagiarism detection is highly significant. When the students become aware of URKUND they are less inclined to seek shortcuts. Trying to cheat the system is ultimately more resource intensive than doing a good job from the start,” says Arshad Hussanee, Learn Online Manager på University of Canberra.
