- the distinction and causes of intentional plagiarism and how it differs from the necessary and inevitable learning error;
- ways to make the discussion of plagiarism an invitation to, instead of a threat of expulsion from, the academic life;
- fun tools and sources to bring to that discussion;
- and the role that scaffolding assignment designs can play in making -- to quote from a plagiarism detection service's legal letter on student copyright of their own work (and we'll look at that letter) -- "the chances of plagiarism vanishingly thin."
