Brownbag Lecture: Using Turnitin to Provide Feedback for Introductory Courses at Universities

AKSB 904, Beirut campus

The English Department is hosting a series of lunchtime lectures on different topics in literature, linguistics and related areas from mid-March through mid-April. The events are part of the department’s Brownbag Lunch Series, so named because they take place over lunch, and attendees are encouraged to bring their own food.  

The lecture on March 16 tackles ways to improve learning and growth in the classroom, this time focusing on the tech platform Turnitin. English Instructor Amy Karameh will speak about using the platform not simply as a way to detect plagiarism, as it is mostly used for, but as a tool to empower students to become responsible and independent learners.
