Turnitin training

Staff from University Technology’s (U[Tech]) Teaching + Learning Technologies team will host eight one-hour workshops on Turnitin this spring.

Turnitin is Case Western Reserve University’s digital plagiarism detection tool. Accessed through Canvas, the tool helps ensure student academic writing submissions are free of unintentional or intentional plagiarism.

During the workshops, attendees will learn how to:

  • Set up Turnitin assignments in Canvas;
  • Use different versions of the tool; and
  • Interpret results of the Turnitin reports.

The first workshop will be held today (Jan. 23) from 11 a.m. to noon in Thwing Center, Room 290.

The second session will be held Thursday, Jan. 31, from 2 to 3 p.m. in Thwing Center, Room 177.

View the Canvas training calendar for dates and times of the remaining sessions.
