The Teaching and Learning with Technology Curriculum
The TLT-C is an instructional resource for faculty consisting of two four-seminar tracks: Course Design and Teaching (or design and delivery).
- Blackboard Intermediate: Enhancing your Traditional Course
The new offering is designed to provide faculty with intermediate-level skills in integrating Bb with face-to-face teaching. Participants will leave this workshop prepared to make effective use of Blackboard and other technologies in reshaping their traditional courses. Instructors new to Blackboard should contact department administrator Tony Krucinski (firstname.lastname@example.org or 973-720-2659) to schedule a one-on-one workshop with one of the Center for Teaching with Technology
- Active Learning Institute
In this a day long workshop faculty will learn about implementing active learning strategies and evidence-based practice appropriate to the classroom no matter where teaching takes place: a large fixed-seat lecture bowl, an intimate seminar room, a virtual classroom online or a specially designed active learning. Workshop participants will design a teachable component for a course and have the opportunity for feedback on its implementation.

According to the Undergraduate Catalog of William Paterson University, it defines plagiarism as "the copying from a book, article, notebook, video, or other source material, whether published or unpublished, without proper credit through the use of quotation marks, footnotes, and other customary means of identifying sources, or passing off as one's own the ideas, words, writings, programs, and experiments of another, whether or not such actions are intentional or unintentional."
Turnitin (Tii) is an Internet-based plagiarism-prevention service that allows faculty compare student papers with a bank of over 150 million archived student papers and close to 100,000 journals, periodicals and books.
Now integrated with Blackboard (Bb) it is a powerful tool for uncovering assignments borrowed all in part from other existing sources. Instructors who create a Tii assignments in Blackboard will receive a report gauging the overall level of originality for each paper that highlights instances of copied text as well as the original source of the material.
