      The Scholarship of Teaching Workshop

      -

      Transform your scholarly teaching into a scholarship of teaching ...

      Scholarly teaching is what everyone of us should be engaged in every day we are with students in a classroom or in our office- tutoring, lecturing, conducing, discussion, all roles we play pedagogically. Our work as teachers should meet the highest scholarly standards of groundedness, of openness, of clarity and of complexity. But the scholarship of teaching requires that we step back and reflect systematically on the teaching we have done, recounting that we've done in a form that can be publicly reviewed and built upon by our peers. It is this difference that moves scholarly teaching to a scholarship of teaching.​ ​​​

      Helping Students Avoid Plagiarism Workshop

      -

      The possibilites for plagiarism have exploded. While the Internet provides an abundance of good scholarly information in online journals and other online documents, increasingly available online materials make copying very easy. In fact, some students may not recognize this as plagiarism. However, if the research paper you are reading has four different font styles and sizes, you know there is a "cut paste" problem.

      This workshop will:

      • Help you understand the specific problems students face when properly documenting research papers
      • Provide you with help in recognizing plagiarism in student writing
      • Give you ideas to help minimize plagiarism
      • Introduce you to the services and people that support writing at GSU
