Academic Honesty Session
In the second module of Tuesday 22 September 2015, the time had come for the IB DP students and their teachers to attend a session on Academic Honesty - a major focus area at Nørre G as well as in the IBO. IB Coordinator Jutta Rüdiger gave an overview of the concept's complexity and extended an inspirational appeal to the students' ethics.
On the 'International Programmes' pages of our website, you can find the Academic Honesty Policy and a guide to Effective Citing and Referencing. The policy is important reading for students and parents.
Librarian Susanne Rose Nielsen explained and offered examples of online literature search through the databases which Nørre G subscribes to.
Susanne also informed students about the help she can provide in her specialist function as librarian.
English teacher Lissi Parmo gave an overview of the way teachers use plagiarism prevention services (Ephorus/Turnitin) to check students' papers.
In the (anonymous) example, a student's paper showed a suspected plagiarism degree of 45%, incl. the source of the copied text and names of other students who had used the exact same source.
English teacher Andrew Miller gave a practical introduction to the helpful referencing and bibliography tools found in programmes such as MS Word.
Attentive IB DP students taking notes and asking relevant questions :).
