In this workshop, you will learn to use Microsoft Word’s built-in features to help speed your writing and editing. You will learn keyboard shortcuts, auto-text, auto-correct, quick parts, styles and templates, and macros.
By the end of the day you will be able to record macros that aren’t covered by Word’s built-in features. There will be lots of practice so that when you return to your office, you will be able to start using your newly acquired skills right away.
Please note that this workshop is taught in MS Word 2016 with a Windows 10 operating system. Participants should have MS Word versions of 2010 or later with Windows 7 or higher. Mac users should be familiar enough with their operating system and Word for Mac that they can adapt what is taught on a PC. For example, some keyboard shortcuts and menu items will be different on a Mac.
Morning and afternoon coffee and snacks provided.
In 1995 Andrea Martin enrolled in a four-month long computer course. On her first day she didn’t even know how to turn one on. Upon graduation, she was asked to stay on as a teacher and hasn’t looked back. Teaching people how to use computers and solve problems have been her passion ever since.
After two years of classroom teaching, she became a training coordinator for a natural gas pipeline company. In that role she formatted and edited technical training materials. Today she freelances in the same field.
Andrea uses Microsoft Word’s shortcuts and macros to speed up the formatting and editing process, and she continually searches for faster ways to perform repetitious tasks. In this workshop she wants to share her in-depth knowledge of how to apply Word’s powerful tools to help others streamline their writing and editing time.
