Plagiarism: When do I Need to Cite a Source?
Presenter: Prof. Lisa Chaufty, Director, McKay Music Library
Plagiarism is a serious academic offense and its consequences can include a failing grade in a course, or expulsion from a program. In this age where so many secondary sources for research are easily accessible online, there are a variety of factors that can lead to a quick copy+paste, or a misguided paraphrase, with unfortunate results. This session, which is geared to students in the School of Music, will focus on what plagiarism is and how to avoid it through citation.

Music and Mindfulness Masterclass
Presenter: Dr. Frank Diaz, Jacobs School of Music
Frank M. Diaz, Ph.D. is associate professor at the Jacobs School of Music and an Affiliate Member of the Cognitive Science Department at Indiana University. He is also Director of the Institute for Mindfulness-Based Wellness and Pedagogy, an organization dedicated to educating teachers, artists, and the general public on the effective use of mindfulness-based practices within work and life. At IU, Frank established one of the country’s first academic courses focused on mindfulness in teaching and performing arts, and leads several mindfulness initiatives through partnerships with the Jacobs School of Music, IU Lifelong Learning, and the Eskenazi Museum of Art. Frank’s research focuses on mixed-methods investigations of meditative practices, and on developing theoretical models that might effectively deal with existing gaps between scientific and humanistic approaches to understanding mindfulness. He has taught meditative practices to thousands of students through courses and workshops at educational, religious, and non-profit institutions across the United States, and his work has been featured in media outlets such as CNN, NPR, Science Daily, and the Huffington Post.
