To ensure fairness and honesty in course work and all communication, Conestoga students, staff, and faculty are required to cite and reference all research. While some programs use specific citing and referencing style guides, most programs use the APA @ Conestoga style. 

How can Modelling APA @ Conestoga in Course Content Help Students? 

Faculty are important mentors for students. When faculty model proper citing and referencing in course content, students can become more knowledgeable about how the system works, more accepting of its importance, and more motivated to use it (Gray & Jordan, 2012, p. 307).
