Copyright and academic integrity

Copyright and sharing
Class lectures and other materials may not be reproduced for anything other than personal use without written permission from the instructor.

Where course materials are shared publicly on the web, you are welcome to pass on the link to friends, but I ask that you check with me before making any other use of the material. It is a violation of both personal confidence and academic integrity to share other students’ work outside the context of this class without their explicit permission.

Your own work from this course is yours to use as you like. Bear in mind, though, that while the use of copyrighted material to create new transformative works is considered to be fair use, this is a complex and rapidly changing legal area.

Academic integrity
The student-administered Honor Code and Honor Pledge prohibit students from cheating on exams, plagiarizing papers, submitting the same paper for credit in two courses without authorization, buying papers, submitting fraudulent documents and forging signatures. On every examination, paper or other academic exercise not specifically exempted by the instructor, students must write by hand and sign the following pledge:

I pledge on my honor that I have not given or received any unauthorized assistance on this examination (or assignment).

Allegations of academic dishonesty will be reported directly to the Student Honor Council.

Respect your own learning process and get the feedback you need on your work, not someone else’s. If you have questions or concerns about what constitutes plagiarism in the context of this course, don’t hesitate to ask in class, over email, or in a visit to my office hours.
