The need to develop consistency and transparency regarding student plagiarism in the postsecondary sector has led to the development of shared approaches and strategies within an increasingly hegemonic rubric of “academic integrity.” Additionally, concerns about millennials’ ability to navigate between the highly appropriative practices of “remix” culture and academic discourse have been amplified by the legislation of increasingly intransigent copyright law and debates about judicial interpretation and enforcement. The focus of this pecha kucha presentation will be an online resource developed at OCAD University for teaching students about visual research. Focusing specifically on the difficulty of defining visual plagiarism, the presentation will showcase examples of visual appropriation in multiple and often widely divergent pedagogical and professional art and design contexts. Given the diversity and multimodality of creative and appropriative practices of art and design, approaches to using visual sources offer, in turn, different ways for thinking about textual practices.
