- Experience in American Psychological Association (APA) formatting is not necessary, as the course is designed for all skill levels.
A number of governing bodies have developed standards for paper submissions. In academia, paper submissions are often referred to as manuscripts. The American Psychological Association (APA) is one such organization that has placed standards on manuscript submission.
College and Universities often select APA formatting as a requirement for student manuscripts. Professional manuscripts are also often required to be in APA format, depending on the governing body accepting the submission.
This course will teach you how to format a template, which can then be used continuously, conforming to APA formatting standards. The formatting associated with APA can be tedious and meticulous; however, it is my job to help make the process easy and rewarding.
Students who have taken this course in the past and remained consistent through completion of the course, were thankful they spent the extra time setting up APA formatting correctly the first time. They then had a template they could use in the future.
Whether you are a seasoned professional looking for a refresh on APA formatting or a freshman in college writing your first APA manuscript, I am here to help and serve. Thank you for your consideration and I look forward to working with you in this skillset acquisition.
Who this course is for:
- Any writer, academic or otherwise, needing to conform to American Psychological Association (APA) formatting standards.
My name is Dan Miller. My life’s purpose beyond the expression of my family’s happiness is to disseminate exercise science education to athletes, peers, and seekers of knowledge in the form of coaching and teaching. My ancillary purpose in life is to pave a path for others, curtailed by fear. I am a strength and conditioning coach at the high school and college level. In addition to my strength and conditioning roles, I am a professor of anatomy and physiology. I am certified through the National Strength and Conditioning Association as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist. I hold a bachelor's and master's degree in exercise science from Boise State University in addition to an education specialist degree from Northwest Nazarene University.
Education is of the highest importance to me now and as I continually pursue educational opportunities. I believe that education is the medium in which we expand our minds and develop as individuals. Professionally, I aim to continue to serve as an expert of education dissemination in the field of exercise science, in particular, strength and conditioning, as a strength and conditioning coach, entrepreneur, professor, and student. I look forward to future correspondence and the proliferation of knowledge to come.
Stress is not the goal, be well.
