Word 2010: Footnotes, Headers & Footers

This week, I will lead a workshop on Footnotes, Headers, and Footers using MS Word 2010 at Pepperdine University School of Law. While preparing for this workshop, I learned a few new things about these document elements and will now share my findings below. At the bottom of this post is a link to a PDF file which contains step-by-step instructions on how to insert and customize those elements. Please view for additional information.

Inserting Footnotes: Inserting footnotes into MS Word 2010 is simple and easy. The toughest part is figuring out how to cite the material using the Bluebook citation rules (which I won’t get into here). With your document open, bring your cursor to the place in the text where you would like to add a footnote. Click on the References tab at the top of your screen. Then select Insert Footnote. Your footnote has now been added. A small superscript footnote call number (as Bluebook calls it) has been added to the text, and at the bottom of the page you will see the same number and a place for you to enter the citation.

Clickers: Faculty Learning Session

On Friday June 11th, Professor Gregory McNeal led our very first faculty learning session on the topic of clickers here at Pepperdine School of Law. In an evaluation sent out to attendees, 100% indicated that his presentation was informative and useful. It was also encouraging to note that 11 faculty members indicated that they would be interested in using clickers during the 2012-2013 academic year. For those of you that were unable to attend and would like to view the presentation, click play on the video below. We will also be posting video-based tutorials on this blog in the coming weeks, which provide step-by-step instructions on how to complete simple tasks in the TurningPoint clicker software. These tasks will be useful to your instruction and most were covered during the learning session presentation.
