In this webinar, we will provide an overview of the changes between APA 6 and APA 7, detail key dates associated with the university’s adoption of APA 7, and outline the resources available to support your learning of the new manual’s rules.
We have a version of this webinar for all students, which applies across the university student body; students writing their doctoral capstone should access the Doctoral Capstone Students version.
Do APA's rules feel arbitrary to you? Believe it or not, there are clear reasons for these guidelines that are directly related to your work as a scholar.
In Part 1 of our APA Citations series, we will provide an overview of APA citation and reference list principles, showing how APA rules are actually designed to help you communicate your ideas more clearly. This session is intended to give you a foundational APA knowledge of citations that we then expand upon in Part 2 of the APA Citations series.
*This webinar recording has been updated for APA 7.
In this second of two APA sessions, Writing Center staff members will discuss nontraditional APA citations and reference entries, with an emphasis on those that are common to Walden assignments. We will provide guidance on citing discussion posts, course videos, and other sources that are required at Walden but not explored thoroughly in the APA manual. Participants will receive links and other tools for helping students master these formats.
In this workshop-style session, students will learn the purpose of an APA Style reference list, how to identify and fix common reference list formatting errors, and resources for further help.
Optional: To fully participate, students should bring a reference list of their own to work on. The list can be one for a current or past assignment, and it will not be shared.

Part 1 of the series focuses on overall formatting errors. While these two webinars complement each other, students can participate or view them in any order.

This webinar will focus on these style rules, covering topics like serial commas, numbers, capitalization, paper formatting, abbreviations, and passive voice. Whether you need a review of APA style or are new to these rules, join us to better understand how to format your writing.
