    Kia ora. A question please – if I am unable to make it to this online workshop – will the content be available in other ways? Thanks.

    • Kia ora,

      The StudyUp resources are in the process of being updated, video recordings are being replaced with self-paced interactive online tutorials for those unable to attend the live sessions.

      These online tutorials will soon be uploaded to

      However, in the meantime, there are some old recordings that may be of interest to you (please note that the reference examples in these recordings are formatted in APA 6th Style – see for information about APA 7th Style).
