Engaging Beyond Words Online Workshop

This full day session explores a range of visuals methods to increase engagement, understanding, and retain learning. Educational researchers suggest that approximately 83% of human learning occurs visually – a fact we need to consider when sharing information and engaging groups.

If you want to improve your presentations, reports, teaching, facilitating, designing engagement or any activity where you could use a boost to explain and share information with people, this training is for you. The ideas and concepts are transferrable to a variety of contexts in-person and online.

The day will run through visual vocabulary and basics, organization of ideas visually, considerations and tools for the in-person and online experience, case clinics to address real life scenarios, as well as facilitation techniques that you can practice immediately. Expect to have fun, explore your creativity and leave with lots of inspiration to add visuals into your work in person and online.
