Faculty will teach students how to avoid plagiarism by: 1. including a plagiarism statement in course syllabi and discuss that statement with students (in all appropriate courses). 2. teaching the requirements and procedures for properly citing sources within the discipline. 3. modeling recognition of sources whenever appropriate on materials you obtained from another source (e.g., handouts, any image or text you put on PowerPoint). 4. trying to create assignments that make it unlikely that students would plagiarize. Administrators will encourage a climate of academic integrity by: 1. publicizing all policies related to academic integrity, including ethical research, copyright practices, special internet issues, and plagiarism. 2. providing adequate support services for students who need extra help in learning how to conduct academic research (Zondervan Library, Academic Enrichment Center, and Writing Center). 3. providing opportunities for students to discuss plagiarism issues.
TAYLOR UNIVERSITY EDUCATION DEPARTMENT DEVELOPING COMPETENT, CARING, AND REFLECTIVE TEACHERS PREPARED FOR WORLD SERVICE PORTFOLIO INFORMATION As part of professional development, students will be required to develop an electronic "portfolio." Your portfolio is a collection of materials that portrays and documents your developing competence and professional development as a teacher. The portfolio will document your competencies as articulated by Taylor Accomplished Practices and InTASC Standards. The portfolio should enable you to capture your unique teaching style and philosophy. In addition, it should provide an opportunity for professional growth through self-assessment and analytical thinking. You should also view this as the beginning of a career-long process of substantiating your professional growth and development in the field of teaching. Your portfolio will also serve as a portrait of your professional skills and abilities during the job interviewing and employment process. The initial portfolio will be completed during EDU 150, Education in America. Development and posting of the artifacts will be addressed in the course. The portfolio is again evaluated when the student applies for admission to the Student Teaching Program. The materials developed and collected over the program are assigned to help prospective teachers become more aware of themselves and reflect upon their teaching performance, values and beliefs. A requirement for credit for student teaching is completion of the portfolio. Your portfolio must be completed and posted by the date specified by the Education Department. The portfolio will be evaluated by your college supervisor who will provide a written evaluation of each section. All elements of the portfolio must be submitted. A portfolio evaluated at the satisfactory level or above is required for completion of the student teaching experience.
