Lack of student understanding of plagiarism and the depth of information now available in online formats provide a landscape in which teachers find themselves searching for students’ sources, feeling like travelers without a compass or roadmap. Presenters share experiences partnering with faculty to document plagiarism, efforts to educate students about plagiarism, and online resources that enable faculty to become adept at locating plagiarized material.
