This article discusses the second of two approaches to assist students to avoid plagiarism, an approach generated in a study funded by the Australian Research Council. This approach is labelled the inquiry learning (IL) approach and was influenced by research focused on the development of thinking in students. This article describes the pedagogy underpinning the approach, the organisation of the project undertaken by the students and the evaluation by the research team. Regardless of approach, a key recommendation is that a whole-school culture is needed to address the problem of plagiarism in a comprehensive way.
