MacEwan Day of Action Against Contract Cheating
Have you ever received messages offering tutoring services, exam, or assignment help? While some of these services are legitimate, others may offer to write your essays or exam questions for you – and for a hefty price. Outsourcing any work -- whether it’s an essay, an exam question, or assignments – is a form of academic dishonesty, since you are attempting to pass off someone else’s work as your own.
On Wednesday, October 21st MacEwan University is taking part in the International Day of Action Against Contract Cheating. Some events happening throughout the day include:
Academic Integrity Student Webinar presented by Dr. Paul Sopcak (Academic Integrity Office) and Alycia Stewart (VP Academic of SAMU). Registration required.
Faculty Workshops hosted by MacEwan’s Academic Integrity Office, Teaching and Learning Services, and eLearning: Registration Required.
MacEwan Library and the Writing Centre are here to help you through every stage of the research and writing process…for FREE!
Here’s a few things you can do to get free help with your assignments:
Use the library’s live chat to get help finding sources for assignments
Make an appointment with your subject librarian for those tougher research questions
Make an appointment or attend a drop-in session with a Writing Centre Tutor to help with your essay outline, thesis statement, or citation formatting. You can also submit your essay online to get feedback before you hand it in.
With all these free supports in place to help you through the research and writing process, there’s no need to pay a for-profit tutoring or essay-writing service.
The Library and Writing Centre provide FREE services that comply with academic integrity!
