APA Style in Your Presentation
A presentation done in APA style just refers to the way citations are included. Unlike a Word document, there is not a required layout to the slides.
What You Need:
- In-text citations, e.g. (Smith, 2019, p. 56) on the slides wherever you've used information from your sources (quoted or not)
- Remember, a good presentation uses minimal text! Use quotes very sparingly. Keep all text short.
- References slide(s) at the end of your presentation
