Students who don't see why they should do their own work: Colin Hayes writes from Notts [Nottinghamshire] where he lectures in a further education college. He'd given one group a simple study task along with suggestions of books, web addresses, etc., to find information. One young woman's work seemed familiar. 'Sure enough, she'd done a cut-and-paste job on a website - my website! When challenged, she was not even embarrassed. She refused to write an original piece as asked, saying she had already done it. I gave her an "unattained" which she then appealed!'
