Guide your students away from plagiarism
One way to counteract plagiarism is to discuss the topic with the students. In this way, you contribute to their knowledge of how correctly referencing. It is always better to get students to avoid plagiarism than have to punish those who plagiarize. Many students need to learn what plagiarism is in practice.
Discuss with your students
Students do not always know what plagiarism is and that they are doing something wrong. Those who deliberately plagiarize have not always thought through the consequences for their own learning.
Tell your students what plagiarism is and what the consequences of it can be. Give examples and discuss together what can be problematic in the writing process.
On the Student web page Cheating and plagiarism , there is more information for students. Feel free to tell your students about the page.
