Writing X Tech: Beyond Integrity: Why We Cite

Apr 19 10:00 am to 11:00 am


Michael Goodwin, English Teacher, The Bronx High School of Science

When it comes to academic integrity, many instructors and conduct officers focus on deterring and resolving incidents of misconduct. While this is important, merely teaching students what they should not do is insufficient. As educators, we must recognize that the very concept of citation is rarely as intuitive and obvious to our students as it is to us. Thus, we must go beyond demanding compliance with rules to reframe the conversation around the merits of ethical action, both in proactive teaching and in taking a developmental approach to sanctioning misconduct.

Turnitin Writing X Tech ( #writingxtech ) kicks off April 18 with a five-day virtual conference featuring webcasts on “The Writing Mindset” and how thinking differently about writing can engage students and set them up for success. K-12 educators, college instructors and students can pick from nine different webcasts offered for free April 18-22, 2016.
