Visual Facilitation Boot Camp!
Designed for team leaders, trainers, meeting facilitators and organizational change agents with a strong understanding of traditional facilitation methods, this practical workshop introduces participants to visual tools and methods that will enhance their work with teams and meeting participants. This is a hands-on workshop designed to take you from “I can’t draw” to “I’m a visual facilitator” in 2 days.
This course offers an introduction to graphic recording (also known as “scribing” or live visual note taking) as one tool in the visual facilitator’s toolkit. Participants are also introduced to designing visual templates to support group collaboration, preparing engaging posters for sharing information with groups, making favorite facilitation activities more visual, and much more. No previous drawing experience is required! Participation is limited to 12 students to ensure everyone receives plenty of practice and coaching. Every participant receives a visual facilitation starter kit worth more than $100 that includes everything you need to get started with visual facilitation, including our favorite refillable German markers from Neuland.
