A Rational Response to Plagiarism

A recent article in the Chronicle provided some helpful tips to individual instructors on how to think through and deal with plagiarism. Among the most helpful tips were:

1. Keep your priorities straight (don't make yourself the plagiarism police - you don't have time).
2. Make your policies clear (in your syllabus).
3. Don't make threats you cannot keep (do what you say you are going to do - don't overreach).
4. Make plagiarism difficult (by designing worthwhile assignments).

To see all of the recommendations, read the article online.
