On Wednesday, October 19th, TCDC was pleased to host a workshop on APA style featuring Dr. Karen R. Harris. Dr. Harris is the lead Editor of the APA Educational Psychology Handbook, and has ben serving as the Editor of the Journal of Educational Psychology for the past seven years. Needless to say, she has a great deal of experience with the ins and outs of APA writing style and citations.
Students were able to presubmit questions. Dr. Harris answered these questions, and took questions from those students who were present at the event. This resulted in a very interview style session. She also offered advice on common mistakes that students and new scholars often make regarding APA style. Also, she shared resources that she recommends to her own doctoral students and shared stories from her experience as an editor.
