Turnitin hosting a Lightning Talk at Bett 2019
Turnitin returns to London for Bett 2020 - the global meeting place for education buyers. This year, the team will participate in the Bett Awards after being shortlisted in the Higher Educator or Further Education Digital Services category.

At Bett 2020, Turnitin is set to exhibit even more solutions that make a discernible difference in education. 

In just 18 months, Turnitin has launched Authorship, the first product to help institutions investigate contract cheating, and Gradescope, which has revolutionised instructor grading using machine learning. At Bett 2019, Turnitin announced its new partnership with Microsoft. One year later, Turnitin will announce general availability of its Microsoft Teams integration at Bett 2020.

With Turnitin in Microsoft Teams, teachers can seamlessly access the most comprehensive plagiarism detection solution alongside their favourite Microsoft apps.

At 2pm on Wednesday and Thursday, and 11am on Friday of Bett 2020, Turnitin will welcome two special guests from Barnsley College to its stand. Rob Whitehead and Rob Lea will share their experience of Turnitin in Microsoft Teams; they will also discuss Barnsley’s five-fold increase in student engagement, as well as improvements in helping teachers save time.

Barnsley College will share tips and insights about how using Turnitin and Microsoft Teams together has helped educators prepare students to succeed in university and the workplace -- from instilling a culture of academic integrity to encouraging critical thinking skills and strengthening digital literacy.

From Wednesday to Friday of Bett 2020, Turnitin will hold a series of Lightning Talks: 15-minute quickfire sessions on source credibility, the digital skills gap, and fantastic feedback. Hosted by Turnitin experts, their Lightning Talks will highlight best practices on how to utilise Turnitin tools and how to prioritise feedback and academic integrity in secondary education.

Visit the Turnitin team in Hall N1-19, Stand NM40 to listen to Lightning Talks based on the ever-changing educational landscape and role of technology in the classroom:
