Curriculum to Design Plagiarism out of Assessment

In April 2015 Jude Carroll from Oxford Brooks University explored how curriculum design as a means toward tackling plagiarism. This session focused on the designed assessment tasks set for students, and offered three types of strategies that can mean students are less likely to find, fake or avoid the task and more likely that they will 'do their own work'. Jude and participants looked at the attitudes, beliefs and habits that might block assessors from using assessment redesign strategies. The aim is that everyone goes away with more ideas in their assessment design 'tool box'.
