Writing Fellow Workshop: The Importance of Word Choice
Date: Wednesday, September 27
Time: 3:00 - 4:00 pm
Presenter: Writing Fellow Judith Belt
Location: 239 MCC
Student writers often rely on language that is most familiar to them - language of their peers or language learned in home, school, or social media environments. Accepting this premise, writing instructors can plan word choice exercises, assignments, and research with the goal of increasing choices to reflect one of two kinds of writing language - impressionistic and photographic. The presentation stressed the importance and the positive and negative consequences of word choice in various writing situations. As Mark Twain put it: "The difference between the almost right word & the right word is really a large matter - it's the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.

DateWednesday, October 4
Time: 12:40 - 1:35 pm
Presenter: John Kane
Location: 123 Penfield (recording)
Technological improvements have it much easier for students to engage in academic dishonesty at a low cost. Students can quickly and easily find:

  • get free answers to questions at sites such as Yahoo answers and Quora,
  • automatically "paraphrase" plagiarized papers to avoid pattern-matching detection at sites such as paraphrasing-tool.com and articlerewritertool.com,
  • evade pattern matching detection on plagiarized by switching characters to other character sets or embedding hidden characters,
  • find most publisher provided test bank questions on the web or on review apps such as Kahoot or Quizlet

 Participants in this session will discuss methods of maintaining academic integrity in their classes.
