  7. 7. Other Guidelines <ul><li>Don’t duplicate information. It’s either in the facilitator guide or participant guide </li></ul><ul><li>You don’t need cross referencing if pages match. </li></ul><ul><li>When you list questions to ask, write in possible answers </li></ul><ul><li>For summaries list key points in the participant’s guide. You can give the facilitator additional key points to make in the facilitator guide. </li></ul><ul><li>Create your PowerPoints first and then use them to create the skeleton of the participant guide. </li></ul><ul><li>Create headlines for the rest of the training and use that to create the skeleton of the facilitator guide and the remaining part of the participant guide. </li></ul><ul><li>Use an appendix if you have a large volume of written material for the participants. </li></ul><ul><li>Run a table of contents for each document. They should match if done right. </li></ul><ul><li>It’s easiest to set up two files and then hand place the page for the facilitator guide. </li></ul><ul><li>Documents may get large so consider converting everything to a PDF when done. </li></ul><ul><li>Set up the template using word styles so that it is easily duplicated and you can run an automated table of contents. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Word and PowerPoint Hints <ul><li>In word a style allows you to duplicate formatting automatically. Go to the format menu and click styles and formatting </li></ul><ul><li>If you do all your headlines and subheads in Styles you can run an automated table of contents by going to insert selecting Reference and then selecting Index and Tables. There will be a tab for Table of Contents. Then go to options and write in the hierarchy of the table of contents. </li></ul><ul><li>To make miniature PowerPoints, go the file menu in PowerPoint and select Send To Microsoft Word. This creates a new word document with small PowerPoints. These PowerPoints can be stretched to any size you want. </li></ul>
