TFAC062 Visual Facilitation Practices: Level 1


Course Description

In this course, you'll dive into a very hands-on, practical introduction to the basic drawing and lettering skills that support a variety of visual facilitation and note-taking practices (e.g., graphic recording, graphic facilitation, Sketchnotes™). You'll have the opportunity to experiment with live, large-scale visual work on walls and smaller-scale work on flip charts, letter-size paper, and notebooks or digital tablets.

Throughout the course, you'll explore drawing your way toward integrating more visuals into your life and work. NO art or drawing background needed!

In this course, you will:

  • Learn about graphic recording, graphic facilitation, Sketchnotes™, and other "visual practices"

  • Explore integrating visual practice into work you already do
  • Gain insights for workshop facilitators, teachers, team leaders, project, process, and change managers, and anyone who takes notes
  • Discover how even if you've ever said, "I can't even draw a stick person!", you'll be able to draw at least 5 types by the end of the day

Note that all drawing materials are provided, and you're welcome to bring any additional materials you want to experiment with, except anything that needs water to utilize (e.g., paints)
