Abstract

This one day seminar, hosted by the Academy JISC Academic Integrity Service and the Academy Assessment Team, will focus upon the role of assessment design in reducing opportunities for student plagiarism and collusion. Appropriately designed assessments that cannot be fulfilled by the submission of cut and paste text from web sources or copied work from other students are the pedagogical response to current problems of increasing plagiarism in student work. The emphasis of this seminar is upon providing delegates with practical advice and guidance on redesigning assessment that highlights the pitfalls as well as the solutions. A wide range of experiences will be presented in the sessions, including keynote presentations from respected authorities in the fields of plagiarism prevention and assessment design and workshops highlighting innovative and novel approaches to assessment. Delegates will have an opportunity to see demonstrations of assessments using innovative technologies and techniques.
