Should the school where a course, seminar, or lecture occurred be listed as the container or the location?

The school and its city, if the city is not part of the school name, should be listed in the “Location” slot in your works-cited-list entry because that is where the course or lecture took place:

Smith, Ryan. English 204: African American Literature. 4 Apr. 2016, Evergreen State College, Olympia. 

For more examples, see our post on citing an image shown in a lecture.
