Files "losing" their macros after electronic transfer? Solution inside.

One of the most significant problems we considered when Georgia went paperless was how to organize the sheer number of files produced over the course of a season.  How would we integrate backfiles and updates to already existing files through the course of the year?  It was hard enough to make sure everyone had the most recent Politics or Economy files when we could physically hand them a copy, and we thought it would be even harder when there were digital files being Dropboxed to multiple teams.

At the beginning of last summer, the Georgia Debate Union coaching staff made the decision to transition from traditional paper evidence to paperless debate.  There are a variety of reason to make this change, and it is enough of a commitment that having clear reasons is important to keep the project on track.  The purpose of this post is to outline our reasons for implementing paperless debate at UGA.  If you are trying to decide whether paperless is right for you or the debate team you are responsible for, perhaps this will help you decide.

Highlight is the new underline. For paperless debate teams, its a must. Creating a highlighting macro in Word is easy and will save you hours of painstaking and tedious clicking. Instructions after the jump.

Going paperless changes a lot more about debate than just what materials you bring to the tournament. Almost every facet of the activity—from argument conceptualization to evidence production to in-round execution—will eventually be revamped to harness the advantages and minimizes the limitations of purely electronic debating.
