Learning to incorporate and cite sources (aka "research") in writing can be one of the most important parts of any student's work in a course. But students (and faculty) often struggle with different parts of this process.

This CITRAL-UCSB Library workshop focuses on teaching three parts of this process: incorporating sources, citing sources, and designing activities and assignments that avert "plagiarism" (aka improper or incorrect use of sources.) Participants will leave with activities to improve students' abilities to work with sources and avert plagiarism, as well as a deeper understanding of conventions associated with source use and plagiarism.
