Visual Facilitation Practice: Part 1

Facilitator: Tracy Kelly

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). Participants will experiment with live, large-scale visual work on walls and smaller-scale work on flip charts, letter-size paper, and notebooks or digital tablets. This fast-paced session will explore drawing your way toward integrating more visuals into your life and work. NO art or drawing background needed!

Ideal for workshop facilitators, teachers, team leaders, project, process and change managers, and anyone who takes notes. If you are one of those folks who has ever said, “I can’t even draw a stick person!”…you will be able to draw at least 5 types by the end of the day!

Topics Covered:

  • What is graphic recording, graphic facilitation, Sketchnotes™,  and other “visual practices”? 
  • The basic writing & drawing skills:  lettering, simple shapes, lines, arrows, bullets, text containers, people, colour & shading, etc.
  • The really important skills: listening & synthesis
  •  Integrating visual practice into work you already do

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn and practice the basic skills that support graphic recording and visual note taking practices
  • Start building your visual vocabulary to use in your field/practice/industry
  • Understand some the practical/logistics required to plan and do this work (e.g. about materials, set up, working with a facilitator, etc.)
  • See multiple examples of visual practice that can be adopted and adapted in your own work
  • Gather a number of resources and ideas to support your next steps 

Note: The title to this course has changed. The former title was Introduction to Graphic Recording.
