APA 7: Broad Strokes and Next Steps
In late 2019, the American Psychological Association (APA) released the seventh edition of its Publication Manual, and in Summer 2020, Walden will be adopting the guidelines from that new edition. In this presentation, two longtime Writing Center leaders will discuss university timelines for implementing these changes in courses and capstones, information about upcoming student and faculty webinars to learn about the changes, resources to support you and your students, along with a Q&A. [Note: This session is a preview of resources and processes; separate sessions later in April will cover the specifics of the changes from APA 6 to APA 7.]
APA 7 at a Glance: Changes and Support for the Switch for Faculty
APA 7 at a Glance: Changes and Support for the Switch for Doctoral Committees
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 help doctoral committees support students in this new manual. This session will specifically address questions and concerns for doctoral committees, including grace periods for capstone writers and APA details specific to capstone documents. Note: This session is an overview of rule changes rather than a comprehensive look at APA more broadly. For more comprehensive content, look for APA 7 versions of our other APA webinars throughout 2020!
All webinars are in Eastern Time.
All Writing Center webinars are free for Walden students to attend. Students can attend as many webinars as they are able and would like to join.
