30-Minute Webcast Series
Why Do Students Plagiarize? The Cultural Contexts of Cheating
Why do students plagiarize? According to anthropologist, Susan Blum, the "Internet is part of the story, but not in the way people usually think about it." She goes on to point out that morality "is also part of the problem, but not because most students are immoral."

Join us in a conversation with Susan Blum as she discusses her research into the cultural contexts of student cheating and the implications of her findings for educators, institutions, and academic policies.

Attendees are eligible to receive a free copy of Ms. Blum's book, "My Word! Plagiarism and College Culture."
