Ilia State University became the winner of the TURNITIN global innovation awards 2017 in the Europe region. The name of the nomination was: “Moving Forward with Academic Integrity“.
The aim of the competition was to determine a successful institution throughout the world in the field of education, which would then promote the improvement of educational process employing the principles of Academic Integrity.
Turnitin is a world leader in exposing plagiarism, assessing students and providing them with feedback. It is used by more than 15 000 educational institutions located in 140 countries and serves a total number of 32 million students.
Ilia State University has been using the Turnitin program since Spring Semester of 2015. It must be noted that Ilia State University was the only Georgian University to have implemented the mentioned service in order to improve the efficiency of learning-teaching process. Initially, with the help of the program, feedback was given to the students of general module at the baccalaureate level. Later on, it was integrated into the components of various level programs; the implementation of this service is gradual and is taking place simultaneously with the curricular process.
Ilia State University would like to thank each and every professor/lecturer who has been using Turnitin in the learning-teaching process and thus, has been significantly promoting protection of the principles of academic integrity, as well as improving the quality of learning.
