Turnitin as a tool for effective writing and maintaining research integrity.
A webinar on the basics and practicalities of the Turnitin application was successfully hosted by CLSU DOTUNI last September 29, 2021. This is part of the run-up activities for the 25th year celebration of Central Luzon’s first Open University. More than a hundred new and current students actively engaged the main speaker, Mr Joey Fernando, on a wide-range of issues and concerns regarding the use of Turnitin. Impromptu simulations on account activation, platform navigation, and ‘similarity checking’ exercise, among others were among the highlights of the almost 2-hour session. In the end, the participants recognize the importance ICT-mediated tools like Turnitin to improve their academic writing and to avoid the pitfalls of plagiarism in their written outputs. This is also part of DOTUNI’s academic support program to foster original and critical thinking amongst their graduate students. A complimentary webinar on academic writing and journal publishing will be launched next. Watch this space for more details on the pre-25th anniversary CLSU DOTUNI activities.
CLSU DOT-UNI Turnitin Webinar
Virtual “meet and greet” to open academic year and kick-off CLSU DOT-Uni 25th anniversary countdown.
CLSU DOTUni hosted two ‘meet and greet’ sessions via videoconferencing last August 30 and 31, 2021. More than a hundred current and new students actively participated in the virtual meetings and interacted with university administrators and faculty tutors. Issues and concerns ranging from alternative payment platforms for university fees, forging tutor-student rapport, to navigating complex program of study regulations were discussed openly. The candid exchange between faculty administrators, support staff and even among students led to identification of interim solutions to otherwise systemic challenges needing long-term institutional reforms. Current students also warmly welcomed incoming ones and shared experiences and survival tips as graduate students at CLSU DOTUni. Aside from formally opening the academic year (2021-2022), the activity also launched the yearlong countdown to DOTUni’s 25th anniversary celebration on 29 August 2022. With the theme, “CLSU DOT-Uni@25 The Digital University and the future of higher education in the Philippines and beyond,” the upcoming run-up activities are opportunities for CLSU to come together as a community for reflection, stocktaking and imagining as we leap-frog to the future.

DOT-UNi Meet and Greet #2
Virtual 5-day writeshop on module development for open and distance learning
CLSU DOTUni successfully hosted an online writeshop on module development for open and distance learning last June 23-29, 2021. Approximately 70 senior and junior faculty members involved in the delivery of Open University programs participated in the activity. With the theme, ‘responding to the teaching-learning resource needs of the Digital University’ –dubbed as the university of the future, facilitators from CLSU and abroad engaged the participants in lectures and writing activities spread over five (5) days. The topics ranged from the basics of technical writing for instructional materials production, plagiarism (i.e. use of Turnitin software) and copyright concerns, to curating online resources for Google classroom and other teaching-learning platforms and use of open education resources (OERs) in packaging course modules. The activity also served as a venue for CLSU academics across disciplines to dialogue, exchange ideas, compare practices and explore prospective collaborations to anticipate the demand of a digital and ICT-mediated delivery of higher education.
DOT-Uni welcomes Dr. Maca and Dr. Villota, two faculty members that will form the team to situate our fully online curricula not only in Asia but globally.
