Helping Learners Cite for Different Contexts

Here's to another term and working with adult learners in an academic setting. In addition a papers, these classes prepare PPT presentations delivered in Adobe Connect. There is great emphasis on documentation as an intellectual property-right issue with both images and text sources. We go to links to determine ways to properly attribute and then work with the academic style requirement. I want the process to be clearer and simpler and less stress-producing. I would like the writing center to prepare a guide to citing for presentation purposes.

Apparently I'm not alone. I so appreciate Dr. Liz Kleinfeld's presentation here that calls for writing centers to help learners with models that are context appropriate--a provision for understanding when academic style might work, and when another is more appropriate.
