Whether it's Wikipedia or crowd-sourced answer websites, it is by now no surprise that students are taking advantage of the immediacy of information online. More than just that though, they are incorporating the information they find in their papers in ways that are short of appropriate (also not surprising). How do we start to tackle this ethical elephant? What are some strategies for engaging students in building a community around the ethical use of information they find online?
In this session we share tips and best practices for enlisting students in building a community of integrity.
