Teaching & Learning Programs eLearning Team made significant updates and additions to the 2016 Plagiarism Tutorial to improve content and accessibility, and make the tutorial more inclusive of the experience of international students
After reviewing the Libraries Plagiarism Tutorial that was completed in 2016, the Teaching & Learning Programs eLearning Team realized that the tutorial needed significant updates to improve content and accessibility, and make the tutorial more inclusive of the experience of international students. Jules Arensdorf developed partnerships with the Writing Center, International Student Services, and the Office of Student Conduct and Community Standards (OSCCS), and organized a series of meetings during the summer of 2021 with representatives from each office to gather feedback on the old tutorial, articulate current needs for these offices and the students they serve, and to better understand any concerns they might have. Partnering closely with Dorothy Mayne from the Writing Center, Jules developed new learning outcomes and created new content and media for the revised tutorial. Jules actively sought feedback from all partners throughout the process, ensuring that the new tutorial would better reflect the experiences of the students we serve. Once the tutorial was finished, partners from the Writing Center, International Student Services, and OSCCS again provided feedback, and each wrote up a quote about how they intended to use the new tutorial with students they work with, and the impact learning about plagiarism would have. These quotes and impact statements will be used to promote the tutorial to faculty and instructors in the summer of 2022 in partnership with the UW-Madison Center for Teaching, Learning & Mentoring (CTLM).
