Workshop for OCAD U Students–Avoiding Plagiarism: Using Sources in Academic Writing

March 19th, 2012 · No Comments · General Posts

The Writing & Learning Centre presents an academic skills workshop for OCAD University Students:

Avoiding Plagiarism: Using Sources in Academic Writing

Learning how to cite sources appropriately in your written work is challenging. This workshop will answer your questions about plagiarism and when you need to cite your sources, such as “When do you need to cite information you find on a web site?” and “If you paraphrase information do you still need to cite it?” It will also introduce you to some practical strategies for reading, note-taking, and writing research papers. These strategies will help you integrate the research you’ve done with your writing so that you are both documenting your sources and maintaining your own “voice” as the writer.

Facilitated by Leah Burns of the Writing & Learning Centre, this interactive workshop will help you approach your academic writing with confidence and success!

Refreshments will be served.

Workshop Details:

Wednesday, March 21 from 9:30am – 11:30am


Monday, March 26 from 4:00pm – 6:00pm

All workshops will be held in the Writing & Learning Centre, Room 1512, Level 5, 113 McCaul Street.

Please RSVP to and clearly indicate which workshop date you will be attending. You will be sent a confirmation email prior to the workshop.
