“It’s very easy for students to get bogged down in their own opinion rather than validating it”

Babette has been using Turnitin to engage her students as writers, and develop their own voice, commenting, “It’s very easy for students to get bogged down in their own opinion rather than validating it”. She says Turnitin is a resource which can help bridge the gap between expectations of academic writing in high school and university, helping the students to develop accountability and introducing them to a broader academic community outside of the immediate classroom.
