Plagiarism 
Monday, July 25, 2016

Last week, the term came again into our collective consciousness when potential first lady Melinda Trump was accused of copying a MIchelle Obama speech. Today we’re talking with Old Dominion University professors who promise failing grades for such an atrocity. We’ll have a discussion digging into what’s so wrong about plagiarism, ways to avoid it, and how much easier it is to do - even by accident - in the digital age.
