Whether you're brainstorming solutions to complex problems, imagining a vision for your organization's future or building your team, they are all easier when you can actually SEE what you're talking about. Graphic facilitation, also known as graphic recording or graphic facilitation, is a technique used to capture essential content during a meeting through the use of hand-drawn words and imagery. Graphic recording supports greater participant engagement, planning and understanding of complex content through the real-time synthesis of information.


In this program, you’ll learn what graphic recording is, the value that graphic facilitation might bring to a meeting, how to work with a graphic recorder, and how to perform some simple graphic recording techniques yourselfundefinedyes, even if you can’t draw a straight line with a ruler!   You won’t want to miss this special event!


If you are not familiar with the concept of graphic recording/facilitation, watch this short YouTube video.
