Discussion: Reflecting on Your Writing: Paraphrasing and Academic Integrity

This week’s Learning Resources will help you develop effective paraphrasing skills and avoid unintentional plagiarism.

For this Discussion, you will reflect on your own writing in relation to paraphrasing and academic integrity. Based on what you have learned from the week’s Learning Resources, you will share your thoughts and experiences on paraphrasing and academic integrity with your colleagues.
