Join us to learn time management skills to help you plan your studies and your life.

In this workshop, we will cover eight (8) strategies to smarter learning by using active learning strategies.

Avoiding Plagiarism

Plagiarism can be an intimidating concept for many students. Everyone wants to prevent plagiarism, but it can be unclear what exactly plagiarism is and how to avoid it. In this workshop we will focus on avoiding plagiarism through effective paraphrasing and quoting.

In this workshop, students will learn the purpose of an APA Style reference list, how to identify and fix common reference list formatting errors. It is recommended that students should bring a reference list of their own to work on. The list can be one for a current or past assignment, and it will not be shared.
