Formatting with MS Word

Elizabeth Roberson

Formatting a document with MS Word can be a difficult, daunting task.  This workshop was presented to graduate students during the Spring 2013 Semester to help them navigate through some of Word’s most basic (as well as a few more advanced) features.  The PowerPoint presented served as an introduction to not only the workshop itself but also the fundamentals of strong document design.  Students were then given a Formatting Handout with step-by-step instructions to help them practice using several of Word’s formatting features.  (This handout was to be used with a Sample Formatting Document.)
