This free course provided an introduction to academic integrity, exploring what plagiarism is and how to avoid it. Rather than focussing on the ‘nuts and bolts’ of referencing styles, the course has asked you to think about what is meant by ‘good academic conduct’ and has explained why good academic practice is so important. Along the way, you have worked through a series of exercises designed to help you to develop an understanding of appropriate academic practice. You have also explored some common pitfalls and difficulties and considered some approaches to avoid them.
