On 21 April 2022, we met with the Kaunas University of Applied Sciences (KUAS) community. This is the second meeting this year between the representatives of the Office and the lecturers at the KUAS. During the meeting, the Senior Specialist (Senior Analyst) of the Office, Dr. Eglė Ozolinčiūtė shared tips on how to avoid plagiarism of images: how to find images and their authors, check the type of license, select, and properly cite the visual material used. The meeting participants wondered how visual material should be selected for lectures and what information should be included in the reference to the source.
During the meeting, the Senior Specialist (Senior Analyst) of the Office, Dr Julija Umbrasaitė presented the Office’s 2021 study “The Supply of Contract Cheating Services in Lithuania”: methodological approach, results and recommendations and their implementation. The meeting focused on how to determine whether a student’s work has been done independently and how to create a learning environment in which students are less likely to breach academic ethics.
The meeting was attended by 33 members of the KUAS community.
