About Rob Kairis

I am heavily involved with educating students about plagiarism--what it is, how to avoid doing it, and what happens to students if they get accused of plagiarizing. I teach a 50 minute workshop as part of the university's FYE/Destination Kent course, taught mostly to in-coming freshmen. I also helped develop "Plagiarism School." When an instructor determines that an act of plagiarism was more the result of poor preparation for college or inadequate writing skills and less the result of out-right academic dishonesty, he or she can ask a student accused of plagiarism to attend Plagiarism School. Plagiarism School is a one-on-one session lasting about 45 minutes.
My other areas of interest include Cooperative Collection Development, particularly as it is applied to library consortia, Information Literacy, and (earlier in my career) Library Automation.
