APA Referencing and Avoiding Plagiarism Presentation By Jennifer Fawcett

I have created a short presentation on the use of APA referencing for students who may be completely new to writing for academia. It is also aimed at helping them to avoid plagiarism, and to understand the importance of using their own voice in their assignments. I based many of the examples and reminders on very commonly made mistakes, and therefore hope that other teachers will find something of benefit to them. I really believe that helping students to understand the conventions of their discipline is important, and that it needs to be taught at the outset - as a specific skillset they can develop. Teachers are encouraged to use this PowerPoint if applicable. Any and all comments, tips and suggestions are welcome! How do you teach your students about this very important aspect of their writing?
