Whether used to create and share information more effectively with others, or for personal use to improve note taking, within education the use of ‘Sketchnoting’ is an increasingly popular mechanism to capture information visually.
There are no art or drawing skills needed, just an interest in the concept of this technique to capture information in an interesting and engaging way.
Designed to give delegates the confidence to undertake this approach for themselves, this practical workshop will explore the basic tools and techniques you’ll need to get started, along with a little background theory to explain why this is such an effective approach. This session will also give colleagues the opportunity to explore how they might utilise this approach for themselves, or with their students, to aid not only the retention and retrieval of information, but also to share and communicate concepts and ideas with others.
Accompanying resources and lecture materials will be made available electronically after the workshop
