Survey Findings: Student Attitudes Toward Writing, Teacher Feedback and Turnitin
In June 2015, Turnitin conducted an exploratory survey of over 1,400 students to explore what students think of the value of writing, feedback from educators and Turnitin. Do students think it’s important to know how to write well? Or to avoid copying and pasting? What do they think helps them improve their writing? Does Turnitin help them learn about the value of originality and proper citation practices?
Join us for a discussion to review students’ attitudes toward writing, feedback and Turnitin.
An accompanying infographic and paper will be shared. Certificates of participation are provide to attendees of the live webcast.
