Amy Pace and Maureen Fitzpatrick Present

Professors Amy Pace and Maureen Fitzpatrick presented the session “Reuse, Renew, Recycle: When Student Writing Becomes Recycling” at the TYCA-Midwest Regional Conference in Iowa City, IA on October 8, 2022. The session invited participants to discuss more complex forms of what students may or may not consider plagiarism: the “recycling” of former work or multiple submissions for an assignment. For many students, the concept of self-plagiarism seems more like reallocated their own resources than stealing their own work–the lines seem arbitrary. The workshop-style session asked participants to respond to  several scenarios that challenge the definition of academic integrity and then to collaborate on a section of a student-friendly definition of plagiarism that focused on student “recycling.”
