Tea and Ethics discussion focuses on plagiarism

"Owning Your Ideas" will be the topic of the next Tea and Ethics panel discussion on Thursday, Sept. 27, at 4:30 p.m. in the James J. Johnson Auditorium. Tea and snacks will be served prior to the discussion at 4 p.m. This event is free to attend and open to the public.

Coastal Carolina University professor Jonathan Trerise from CCU's Department of Philosophy & Religious Studies and professor Denise Paster from the Department of English will lead a discussion on plagiarism, with a focus on what teachers can do to better educate their students on what constitutes plagiarism and how to prevent it.

The panel will also explore what it means to own intangible concepts such as ideas, how the changing digital landscape presents students with new and complex problems and what can be done to educate students in their attempt to succeed academically.

Tea and Ethics is a public forum sponsored by Coastal Carolina University's Jackson Family Center for Ethics and Values.

The Johnson Auditorium is in the E. Craig Wall Sr. College of Business Administration, located at 119 Chanticleer Drive E. in Conway.
