This Friday, March 20, faculty members from the Departments of Physical & Life Sciences, Business, Education, and Communications & Social Science will gather to discuss Turnitin. Professors Ann Buchmann, Nathaniel Gallegos, Marc Daczewitz, and Bob Knight will join Electronic Resources Librarian Matthew Perrie to demonstrate how the application can be utilized to improve upon teaching and learning.
Perrie will kick off the panel discussion with some application statistics for February. And he’s got good news: In a relatively short period of time, 33 faculty members have opted to use Turnitin, and 832 students have submitted 1,926 assignments generating as many Originality reports. While fewer faculty members use the Grademarks tool in Turnitin, it is certainly gaining traction. Grademarks was accessed 175 times in February, and a total of 46 papers were graded via the tool.
To find out more about how Turnitin is being used by faculty and students, sign-up to attend the Panel Discussion Lunch & Learn. Feel free to bring your lunch or grab something from Book Ends, the LLC’s Coffee Shop & Café. Some finger foods will be served!
