“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

Plagiarism Games

Have a play with this interesting online approach to plagiarism from University of Leicester: Don't Cheat Yourself

They say: 'Don’t cheat yourself’ is an interactive online tutorial designed by the Student Learning Centre to help you to understand what plagiarism is and how to avoid it. There are different versions of the tutorial available tailored to the needs of different subjects.

I like it - it does seem user-friendly and I like that there is a usable strategy for avoiding plagiarism, based on planning, recording, note-taking and referencing.

And in the spirit of acknowledging sources, the creators reference their inspiration by tutorials from Vaughan Memorial Library, Acadia University, Canada - which is also very nice and a little shorter, at 10 minutes: You Quote it, You note it
