Session: Proofreading and Plagiarism
Proofreading – improve your own skills.
Asking other people to check work before it is submitted does not help to develop independent learning skills. Developing proofreading skills will help to overcome this.
Plagiarism – what it is and how to avoid it.

Plagiarism is committed when other people help them to write their assignments, even if it is only an occasional paragraph. Plagiarism is also committed when referencing is not used correctly.
