Library Workshops Related to Academic Honesty

Demonstrating Academic Honesty in University Writing Assignments

Two essential academic skills in university writing are quoting and paraphrasing. In this in depth workshop, you will first see examples of texts and discuss what constitutes plagiarism, if any, in each case. The respective advantages of quoting and paraphrasing will be looked into.  Direct quoting and paraphrasing skills which help you demonstrate academic honesty will be discussed and practised. Finally, RefWorks, a web-based bibliography management tool, will be introduced and you will know the way which helps you manage the citations easily.
