Academic Integrity Is a Vital Component of Any Professional Educator

The Internet is a two way street. While teachers are tough on students plagiarism, the latter can also backfire using the same tools educators often use to identify plagiarism ---the Internet. How? Simply by typing a line or two from an assignment or even other teaching materials on Google.

When you hear about faculty plagiarism, it mostly involves a publication, writes Miki Crawford. But he also asks to reflect on these questions: "Do you create PPT from text content? Do you use ideas or handouts from colleagues? Do you copy a chapter from a book as supplemental reading without providing the source information? Do you use pictures or trademarks from the Internet?" Think twice.

In this post, the cited author, at Faculty Focus lists the Top Five Overlooked Citations Faculty Should Watch When Creating Course Materials.(bold is ours):

    1. Place a citation at the bottom of your PowerPoint slides (or better yet, on the master slide) to reference your textbook. If you use a direct quote/definition from the text, include the page number afterward.

    2. Provide credit where credit is due when using ideas, organization of content, or quotes from colleagues.

    3. Provide references on any copied materials that you use as supplements and consider the Fair Use Law.

    4. Write or type Web links or references on any articles that you send to students or upload on a course content site such as Blackboard. After recording the citation on the article, it can be copied as a pdf. Merely citing these on Blackboard may not be enough.

    5. Do those pictures from the Internet that you wish to use have a copyright sign or is the website copyrighted? If so, request permission before you copy. There are plenty of open source pictures and graphics on the web that are for anyone’s use. However, trademarked images should not be used without permission.
