i try to give as much info as possible and not just bash the prof though. (even though i feel he might deserve it sometimes)
Definitely. If you bash, they ignore them. I plan on typing a 1-2 page evaluation for my professor. I know the material and get an A in her class and know that she is wrong 50% of the time. She has no business teaching. Sounds like you have a similar situation.

Report it to the DEAN. No other option.

And while you're at it, ask him what the POLICY is on things like this. This gives him a clear signal that you're interested in the follow-up.

I think that i might bring this up to some fellow classmates who feel the same way I do about this course and maybe we can all setup a meeting with the dean to discuss the matter. I've heard of that being done in the past with positive results so maybe its worth a shot...

My professors post references within and at the end of most powerpoint presentations. I guess they gotta get their info somewhere as well.

I would go to the dean directly. I'm an education major myself and while I don't expect everything I do to be original, there is a line that I have to draw. What he did sounds like he got lazy and tried to take the easy way out but that'* not what teaching is about.

you need to clarify here. thats not what teaching SHOULD be about. in our system, especially at the college level, thats what it IS about, more often than not.

college professors typically are not there to teach -- teaching is a byproduct, a necessary evil for most of them.

Two of my teachers use power points and such from other teachers, but they have both mentioned to the class that the material comes from someone else. Both teachers have worked with or know the professor they got the material from. That might be the case here, but i'd say go find out what the policy is or go to the dean, like others have said.

yea if it was me I'd go to the dean... here if we get caught plagiarizing on one paper we flunk the class.
Why should teachers be able to plagiarize?



The only teacher that i have that uses powerpoints in her class is my Psych teacher, and I know she wrote them, because she wrote the damn textbook were using :P
