|Supercharge Word: Seven Tips to Boost Productivity|
When: May 5, 2018 9-12:30 MT
Where: Innovate Calgary (Boardroom 2/3)
This fast-paced workshop, co-hosted by Editors Calgary and the Society for Technical Communicators, introduces you to the Microsoft Word tools that supercharge your writing and editing time. Come and be challenged by advanced keyboard shortcuts, auto-correct and auto-text, find and replace, templates and macros. The workshop begins with a hands-on test of your keyboard shortcut skills.
The instructor will be using MS Word 2016 on 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 to what is taught on a PC. For example, some keyboard shortcuts and menu items will be different on a Mac.
Bring your laptop and power cord, and be sure to have a mouse.
Coffee and light 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.
