Visual plagiarism, what is it and what can we do about it?

Plagiarism, as a topic, is well researched and widely understood in the academic community. However, this research and understanding largely focuses on plagiarism in the written word. Considerably less is known about visual plagiarism. While some scholarly literature on visual plagiarism exists, there is a dearth of literature on instructional, or best-practice resources for instructors.

In this talk, Dr. John Paul Foxe, PhD, and Dr. Sarah Eaton, PhD discussed ways to pre-emptively address visual plagiarism through the education of instructors and students. Dr. Fox and Dr. Eaton spoke to prevention with examples in four distinct disciplines, namely presentation design, illustration, digital media and architecture.
