SketchNoting Essentials: An Introduction to Visual Note Taking
Empirical evidence suggests that people have an innate capacity to think visually. Once we are educated, however, we lose much of that ability, and our thoughts and communication become written language-centric. Zeger Van Hese would like to bring back that long lost ability of thinking and communicating visually. In this hands-on workshop, he covers the basics of visual note-taking. Also known as SketchNoting, this style of note taking helps you develop visual metaphors, retain information, and at the same time tap into several learning modalities: visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile. Whether you use SketchNoting to summarize conference talks or presentations; to map or generate ideas, notes, thoughts, or test strategies, this form of note taking is easy to learn, practical, and fun. Yes, you will be drawing. But the good news is that SketchNoting does not require you to be good at drawing. It is about conveying ideas—not making art. Join Zeger to learn how you can create visual notes that stick. Leave with a desire to try this at the office.
