Description:

In this 90 min. APA webinar we will uncover the basics of APA formatting for academic writing.

Though the purpose of APA style may not seem clear at first, it provides a standardized way to format documents, give credit to others’ ideas, and present information clearly and understandably. By attending this webinar, students will learn how to format a title page, an abstract, and headings in their APA style papers; document a variety of source types correctly through in‐text citations and references; and paraphrase with accuracy and ease. As students grow in their confidence in using APA, they will begin to appreciate that they and their work are part of a community of academics researching and writing in numerous critical fields.
