Students Prepare their Assignments in Advance

Alyson has had sole responsibility of managing Turnitin at her University since 2002. Under her management the use of Turnitin has grown from a few early adopters to almost universal usage. As well as training more than 500 academic staff, she was also involved in the design, administration and promotion of the inaugural Academic Integrity Module aimed at teaching staff and students about the principles of academic integrity and the university’s values. Always the innovator, Alyson is excited about the Turnitin roadmap and future development of the product, and is working with Turnitin to help shape its direction. According to Alyson one of the additional benefits of Turnitin is that students prepare their assignments more in advance

“Using Turnitin provides students with the opportunity to submit their papers to Turnitin well in advance of the assignment due date...this really helps with time management and planning which are wonderful additions to their skill set.”

Alyson was a Turnitin Global Award Winner in 2015
