A New Baker’s Dozen of Microsoft Office Tips and Tricks

We’re back with a new set of tips and tricks for the efficient use of Microsoft Office!  Please join Dr. Kris Condon, retired program coordinator of the Kankakee Community College Paralegal/Legal Assistant Studies Program and a Microsoft Office Master Instructor, to learn about some efficiency strategies for working with Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.  Tips will include these Word efficiencies:  Styles; creating text, paragraph, list, and table styles; attaching styles to documents vs. templates; using styles to create a Table of Contents; creating an index; creating and using cross-references; using tables of figures and captions.  Excel efficiencies include using AutoFill; paste linking Excel data to a Word document; Excel tables; and using the Consolidate feature.  PowerPoint efficiencies include Slide Masters; special printing options; saving as PDF; and video narrating a PowerPoint.

Kristine Condon, Ed.D., joined the Sigma Chi Leadership Institute (the 501(c)(3) arm of Sigma Chi International Fraternity) with backgrounds in community college leadership, corporate training, and legal/civics studies. After completing her undergraduate degree at Illinois Wesleyan University, she worked as a paralegal for the state judiciary. While pursuing her master’s degree in corporate training and development at Loyola University of Chicago, Kris worked as a graduate assistant in undergraduate teacher education. Kris spent 22 years on the faculty of Kankakee (IL) Community College as its workplace development trainer to create customized corporate training solutions for the area’s business and technology partners. She also served as the director of KCC’s ABA-approved paralegal training program and launched the Illinois Civics Academy for Teachers (ICAT), the first-ever civics higher education program funded by the Robert R. McCormick Foundation that focused exclusively on Illinois government and civic engagement. Kris earned her doctorate in community college leadership from National Louis University, focusing her research on the innovative characteristics of business-education training partnerships
