6th International Integrity and Plagiarism Conference

By Toni Sant (Wikimedia UK)

From the 16th to the 18th of June 2014, I attended the 6th International Conference on Integrity and Plagiarism at the Sage Gateshead, just across the Tyne River from Newcastle in England. The main reason for attending this conference was to deliver a keynote address on the second day of this event, entitled Student online research and critical thinking: Wikipedia in education.

Wikimedia UK volunteer Hannah Jones wrote a blog post about this conference and a video of the keynote presentation will be available soon through the official conference website.

I'd like to thank the conference organizers for inviting me to speak at this conference, as well as fellow Wikimedians LiAnna Davis from the Wiki Education Foundation for recommending me as a keynote speaker, and Jake Orlowitz who provided me with CC-BY-SA slides from a similar presentation he gave at the Plagiarism Education Week last April.
