How to Reference a Lecture in APA

Use the following template to cite a lecture using the APA citation format. We also provide style guides for the MLA and Chicago styles. To have your bibliography or works cited list automatically made for you, check out our free APA citation generator.

Once you’re finished with your citations, we can also help you with creating an APA title page.

This style of reference would be used if you were citing a set of notes from a lecture (e.g., PowerPoint or Google slides provided by your instructor).

Citing online lecture notes or presentation slides

APA format structure:

Author, A. (Presentation/Slide Date). Name or title of lecture [file format]. Name of Website. URL

APA format example:

Saito, T. (2012, September 14). Technology and me: A personal timeline of educational technology [PowerPoint slides]. SlideShare. http://www.slideshare.net/Bclari25/educational-technology-ppt

Tip: If you want to cite information from your own personal notes from a lecture as personal communication and refer to it only in the body of your essay, you can follow the style guide for personal communication available in the Interview section.
