Plagiarism

We've discussed this before, but the issue will always be with us.  The Chronicle of Higher Education this week reports about two students who were charged with plagiarism because they took their papers straight from Wikipedia.

Which leads us to post again our all-time favorite video on Plagiarism.  It's from the University of Bergen in Norway. There are subtitles if you don't speak Norwegian.

The best way to curb plagiarism is to command the respect of your students. I've had many professors who basically just phoned it in and had absolutely no interest in their students. It's easy to see why the students aren't willing to put much effort into the class.
