Use it, Adapt it! New Tutorial on APA Citation

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

If you’re looking for an open educational resource for learning APA Style citation, this tutorial may be for you! The 30-45 minute self-paced, interactive tutorial created by the University of Alberta Library provides an overview of APA citation 7th edition guidelines and explores why citation is important and elements of common source types. The APA Style Citation Tutorial is designed with undergraduate Education students in mind, but as an OER it's available for everyone to use and adapt!

Published through Open Education Alberta, the APA Style tutorial is the first time the University of Alberta Library's open textbook and OER publishing service had been used to develop library teaching materials through the Pressbooks platform. The tutorial was created and published during the shift to online learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic and local budget cuts to education funding, which emphasized our goals of sustainability and openness for the tutorial. The APA Style tutorial was also featured in Open Shelf magazine last year. In the first article we discussed the development of the tutorial and in the second we explored the benefits of OERs and using Pressbooks to produce these resources.
