They Want Me to Teach APA for 75 Students?: Transforming Citation Instruction for Large (or Small) Classes​

  1. 1. They Want Me to Teach APA for 75 Students?: Transforming Citation Instruction for Large (or Small) Classes​ Lisa Becksford Virginia Tech Blacksburg, VA
  2. 2. 1 Teaching citations can be rough.
  3. 3. 2 Students aren’t interested in the nitty-gritty details of perfect citations.
  4. 4. 3 Students have probably learned the basics of citations before.
  5. 5. 4 Active learning is possible when teaching citations, even in large classes.
  6. 6. How it works ⊙ Show a citation in correct format ○ Spend as much time as you think you need ⊙ Give students a link to a Google Form that shows them citation examples and asks them to spot problems
  7. 7. Let’s try it! Mian, N. D., Carter, A. S., Pine, D. S., Wakschlag, L. S., & Briggs-Gowan, M. J. (2015). Development of a novel observational measure for anxiety in young children: The Anxiety Dimensional Observation Scale. Journal of Child Psychology & Psychiatry, 56(9), 1017-1025. doi:10.1111/jcpp.12407 Please visit tinyurl.com/apademo
  8. 8. https://docs.google.com/forms/d/1YDPrrf-pRrlganLn8LCTywb79P m47BZE0w6DdobmqYk/edit?usp=sharing The results tinyurl.com/apademo
  9. 9. Why it works ⊙ Works for large or small classes, undergraduate or graduate students ⊙ Free technology with low risk of student embarrassment ⊙ Reusable ⊙ Mobile-friendly ⊙ Conducive to follow-up activities ⊙ Works for styles beyond APA ⊙ Gives students what they need
