Your Idea or Mine: How to Navigate Cultural Differences on Plagiarism and Cheating
Monday, November 11, 3:30 - 4:30pm
CTE: Thomas Cooper Library, Level 5, Room L511
For: Faculty, Staff, Graduate Students, ITAs
Led by Dr. Michelle Hardee and Mrs. Terry Goodfellow

Globalization, technology, and common language have certainly made it much easier to share information and research in the 21st century, however, not all of our definitions of sharing are the same! When we talk about Academic Integrity in the classroom and what kinds of "helps" are appropriate - proper citation of sources in writing and research, doing homework and projects together, using the internet to help with presentations and projects - there are different definitions and expectations from Beijing to Bogota to Birmingham. Countries differ regarding what information is considered to "public" and "proprietorial". Ideas about what it means to help friends and family members be successful also vary greatly. High Context and Low Context cultures differ in what it means to honor those in positions of authority by using their materials. Participants will discuss these cultural differences and values and seek to explore ways to raise awareness for both students and faculty on this important topic.
