JISC organised the first international conference on plagiarism which was held at St James Park (the home of Newcastle United). Over 100 people attended. Most attendees were from Higher Education but there were representatives from a couple of English FE colleges.
It was a fascinating event which covered every conceivable aspect of plagiarism. The event attracted considerable media attention .
I learnt a great deal from the conference and plan to update my FAQ once I have time.

I visited Aberdeen today to discuss PC Passport with a number of Head Teachers, Local Education Authority staff and SQA Co-ordinators. PC Passport is very popular in Aberdeenshire (it must be the low cost ;-) and the meeting was to discuss support materials and using PC Passport for teacher training. It sounds like most Aberdeenshire schools will be offering Passport next year. More information on the PC Passport online forum.
