Aileen Smyth from MRU Writing and Learning Services
joined us this week for a workshop on APA citations and referencing (amazing MRU handout on this topic
In order to prepare for her visit the EDUC1231 students had identified their "burning questions" for inquiry
and found at least one related reference through email conversations with a "topic mentor". Aileen then provided student with tips and advice on how to convert these references into APA format.
After her workshop, the students got into their "burning question" poster groups and began entering their PowerPoint poster templates
. By the end of the class, each group had added a title, their names, their burning questions, and references to their posters. The digital files were then uploaded into the Group Area of our Blackboard course site
so that they could continue to work on the posters, outside of class time.
