Screen shot of student submissions in Turnitin

The FSE eLearning Team has designed a short workshop to help academics interpret Turnitin originality reports. The 60 minute session will provide an overview of some of the benefits and limitations of Turnitin, and an insight into some of the common mistakes made by students in citation, paraphrasing and use of quotations.  You will also learn about some of the tricks that students may use to try to fool Turnitin.  We hope that the workshop will encourage discussion among participants, and will give you some guidance on how to proceed if you do come across a suspected case of plagiarism or collusion.

The workshop is open to all FSE teaching and support staff and lasts one hour.

The next available dates for the workshop are Wednesday 4 April at 1.30pm, Monday 23 April at 3.30pm and Friday 4 May at 10am (EPSELT022).  To book your place, please go to the University’s online training catalogue and search for the relevant training course – EPSELT022.

If these times are inconvenient, we can schedule School-specific workshops for small groups at a date and time convenient to you – just get in touch with
