Free Workshops for Students on Writing Research Papers

Do you have a research paper to write this Spring semester? The IUP Writing Center will offer these free and open workshops on Wednesday evenings in 218 Eicher Hall.

  • Wednesday, Feb. 1: Using MLA to Document Sources
    MLA is commonly used in the humanities and is often required in College Writing courses. This workshop will show you how to cite sources within the body of your paper and how to create a Works Cited page at the end.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 8: Using APA to Document Sources
    APA is commonly used in the social sciences and education. This workshop will show you how to cite sources with parenthetical references in your paper and how to create a list of references at the end.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 15: Using Google Scholar to Locate and Document Sources
    Google Scholar is a useful tool for writing research papers. This workshop will show you how to use Google Scholar to find full-text sources, including material at IUP’s library.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 22: Revising Your Research Paper to Flow Smoothly
    Once you’ve got the sources, you still have to fit them in with your own ideas and get everything to flow together. This workshop will help you do that.
  • Wednesday, Feb. 29: Proofreading Your Paper
    Do you have trouble seeing mistakes in grammar and punctuation in your writing? Maybe you’re using the wrong strategy when you read. This workshop will show you how to find errors and correct them.
  • Wednesday, March 7: Using Prezi to Create Dynamic Presentations
    PowerPoint can be easy to use but it gets boring quickly. Prezi is a dynamic, easy-to-use alternative. This workshop will show you how to impress your audience with an eye-catching presentation.

All workshops will begin at 6:00 p.m. and last for about one hour. No appointment is needed—just walk in! Can’t make the date or time? Please e-mail w-center@iup.edu and we’ll send you the presentation handouts. For more information, call 357-3029 or visit the IUP Writing Center.
