The participants’ course assignments are published on this website to promote sharing of ideas about the course topics. All work is the intellectual property of the writer. As such, any copying of this work, even short sections of the work, is theft and is forbidden.
Participants in TPD courses can read these assignments and communicate with the authors by email or by the course blog. In addition, participants can submit drafts of their assignments to the course trainers or fellow participants for review and comment. Participants are encouraged to revise and improve their work based on this type of communication.
However, all written work submitted by participants as individual assignments must be the original work of the participant. If any participant submits work that is completely or partially copied from any source, they will be failed in the course and their case will be submitted to university authorities for disciplinary action.
If there is any question in the participant’s minds as to what constitutes ‘plagiarism’, they should ask their course trainer, submitting their written work and noting where they got their ideas from. The course trainer will inform the participant if what they wrote is in violation of this policy.
As teachers and participants in pedagogic training, it is important to share ideas and work together at times during the course. However, for individual assignments, this freedom to read and discuss other people’s work comes with the responsibility to act responsibly and honesty.
