Conference Board of Canada Issues Statement on IP Reports
Jun 17, 2009
Commentary by Stephen Downes
The Conference Board of Canada has issued the appropriate mea culpa: "Plagiarism did occur, and it wasn't detected due to insufficient oversight of this project. The evidence indicates there was undue reliance on feedback from a funder who was deemed to have important technical expertise. We failed to seek similar feedback from a broad range of stakeholders. The report relied heavily on too few sources and lacked sufficient balance. Moreover, the reports did not follow our internal quality review process. Overall, there was inadequate monitoring of this entire project." A new report will be authored.
