The Price of Plagiarism

Great article in the Chronicle of Higher Education, The Price of Plagiarism: Why bother teaching our students not to cheat when professors can get away with it? talks about the difference between policies and consequences for students who plagiarize versus faculty.

Consider what happens when professors plagiarize other professors. The recourse we have as authors is far different — more limited and more difficult to pursue — than when students plagiarize. All of which raises the question: Why are our students held to a higher standard than we are?


A data-driven approach to education

Queen’s professor James Fraser awarded 2016 CAP Medal for Excellence in Teaching Undergraduate Physics!

Congratulations to James Fraser!

“I’ve had a colleague say to me ‘you made your lecture into a tutorial,’ and I agree,” says Dr. Fraser. “Students appreciate it when they’re active participants in a lesson instead of a prof standing at the front telling them what they need to know. Most students appreciate the fact that their needs are leading the lecture experience.”
