Turnitin? Turnitoff: The Deskilling of Information Literacy
Brabazon, Tara
Turkish Online Journal of Distance Education, v16 n3 p13-32 Jul 2015
Plagiarism is a folk devil into which is poured many of the challenges, problems and difficulties confronting higher education. This article investigates how software--Turnitin in particular--is "solving" a particular "crisis" in universities. However, I investigate how alternative strategies for the development of information literacy offer concrete, productive and imaginative trajectories for university staff and students.
