Turnitin and Eiffel (Turnitin's regional partner), are very pleased to announce that we are intending to run the first ever African Academic Integrity Seminar for University Heads (Presidents, Vice-Chancellors, Deputy Vice-Chancellors, Deans etc)
This event will take place on Thursday 23rd May 2013 at the Protea Hotel, Johannesburg international airport. There is a shuttle bus from the airport (behind the Intercontinental Hotel) which will bring delegates to the hotel.
Participants of this seminar will include University Heads whose universities currently use Turnitin as well as those who do not, but wish to gain some information about its many advantages and about academic integrity in general.
Two guest speakers include Dr Cath Ellis from the University of Huddersfield, UK and Stella Orim, University of Coventry, UK.
