RMIT, among other institutions, currently utilise the website, Turnitin, to detect plagiarism in student work.
Its use undermines the right to a presumption of innocence. And creates distrust between students and staff and is not in the interest of developing quality relationships.
It further isolates students from the university community, rather than building a close and supportive university environment.
We, the undersigned, call on RMIT to abolish the use of Turnitin.
The Abolish 'Turnitin' petition to RMIT was written by Tim Phillips and is in the category Education at GoPetition.
