Document Design for Effective Communication Using Google Docs

Effective document design can be the difference between your message getting across to your audience or simply getting lost on your audience. Whether you are creating correspondence, procedures, team communication, project reports, term papers or other documentation, different formatting techniques for fonts and paragraphs can make integral pieces of your document catch your reader’s attention. Utilizing Styles can help organize your document, as well as using headers and footers. Did you want your first page to look different or not have a page number? That’s possible! You can also organize your list data using bullets or tables. So many possibilities! Come to this workshop to learn more!

Target audience: Anyone looking to create visually appealing documents that communicate effectively to a wide range of audiences or purposes. This workshop will focus solely on Google Docs. Future workshops will address document design for Google Slides or Google Sheets.

Workshop length: 1 hour plus an additional half hour for open Q & A.

Workshop format: Instructor-led demonstration and lecture. Participants will be encouraged to participate hands-on by applying new skills and techniques on existing documents and ask questions. A handout will be provided.
