In 2009 the Academic Board at the University of Sydney revised its previous policies on student plagiarism and included a new feature addressing the use of ‘plagiarism detection software’ (PDS). The ensuing policy anticipates the possibility of university-wide introduction of the academic integrity monitoring software Turnitin (TII). Although the policy focuses on the educational value of the use of PDS rather than a policing approach, the implementation of the policy to ensure this orientation is complex. This paper outlines a university-wide project to facilitate the implementation of the Academic Board policy to ensure that all faculties can make informed decisions concerning the best practice use of PDS to facilitate student learning and quality teaching. The project will contribute to research in that it will provide evidence as to how the current diverse practices of the uses of PDS, both positive and negative, affect student learning and teachers’ pedagogic practices.
