Online Workshop on American Psychological Association referencing: The Hand Rule - July 30-31, 2020

Referencing is important in the field of academic but it has been a challenge to our students, scholars and researchers to use or remember the referencing style and guidelines without the help of the citation generator.

Hence a two-day international online workshop on American Psychological Association referencing (APA) was organized by the Gedu College of Business Studies (GCBS) led by Mr Phub Dorji, Lecturer, GCBS.

The workshop introduced the participants to APA referencing, the procedure of in-text citation and hand-rule to remember APA referencing. The participants also had a hands-on session where they practised writing academic papers using APA style and guidelines.    

The overwhelming participation of enthusiastic principals, managers, corporate officers, scholars, researchers, academicians, and students from India and Bhutan made the workshop successful. A total of 36 participants registered and participated in the workshop. A minimal fee of Nu 500/- was charged for the 2-day workshop from each participant. The participants were awarded e-certificates for participation at the end of the workshop.
