Workshop for faculty and staff: APA Style Central
March 08, 2017 2:00 PM 60 min

APA Style Central is a new online tool developed by the American Psychological Association. Designed to help learners master APA style, it contains a variety of learning objects (including samples, instructional videos, and quizzes) as well as a writing environment with templates and formatting tools that automatically generate citations and references. Papers can be written directly in the platform and exported into Word. APA Style Central can also be integrated into Moodle courses.
 
Librarians will be officially rolling out APA Style Central to students starting in Fall 2017. The goal is to provide our students with a reliable tool to help them develop confidence in citing and referencing using APA, and the ability to cite their sources and create references more easily and accurately.
 
All are invited to attend this LRN session. Participants will be provided with an overview of the platform’s layout and main functions, and the opportunity to test it out for themselves!

Registration is available on the LRN. More information…
