Episode 8: The Pitfalls of Plagiarism

It has been a hot minute with lots of things going on in the world of Wyrd Learning, but we're delighted to finally release this episode called the Pitfalls of Plagiarism. We welcome, once again, Dr Catherine Armstrong, a Reader in American History at Loughborough University, to the show. Catherine has taught undergraduates and postgraduates for many years and chaired Academic Misconduct Committees, so her thoughts on why students plagiarise, how it's detected and how to avoid the pitfalls are so insightful. You'll learn a great deal from Catherine's experience - we certainly have!

We're also excited to announce our LIVE Brainstorm, taking place on Thursday 16th February, 6pm GMT.

Learn our simple framework for analysing your essay questions. This is a crucial first step so that you can select relevant research more strategically, focus your reading, develop a clear structure and write with confidence. Even if you already do well in assignments, we guarantee that this Brainstorm will help reduce the effort you're currently putting into your work and make academic writing waaay more enjoyable! And, wouldn't we all like to save time and have more fun, while still achieving our goals?
