ONLINE** Visual Note-taking Basics (for adults)
Learn how to use visual elements to improve your notetaking and enhance your communications!
Pictures are exciting! Thinking Visually unpacks the idea of using simple, hand drawn images to capture ideas, tell stories or to visually describe events.
In this four hour workshop, Julia Curtis and Kylie Dunn will build your skills to practically apply visual thinking by learning about framing concepts, drawing ideas and bringing words to life. In this session, we'll be focusing on capturing your own notes and telling stories in pictures and words.
NOTE: Registrations for this event will close on Monday 12th June to allow us time to mail out the materials and resources!
This course is designed for anyone who wants to improve their note taking and design communication skills - regardless of the work you do. It's a skill that can be used by everyone at work or home to improve how you think and how you communicate those thoughts.
Benefits of the course
- Visual note taking helps improve memory retention - a great technique for study notes and also developing communications that stick.
- Visual components in your communication assist with providing context - benefits of making your communication more engaging and easier to understand.
- Visual capture in meetings can help bring out key ideas, messages and themes - while being an engaging and easily interpreted medium.
- It builds visual techniques to expand your brain!
We hope that after this workshop every list will tell a story, notebooks will burst with colour and your ideas will blossom with the assistance of pictures.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Sure, click the Contact Host to ask any questions you might have.
What do I need to bring?
Your sense of adventure! You will need a computer or device that allows you to participate in a Zoom meeting - with a microphone and a camera (so you can share your drawings). If you have pens you like to use then you can have them handy, but we will mail you materials.
What if I can't draw?
This is not an art class, remember it is not about being able to 'draw'. We will teach you how to use colour and simple icons/lines to enhance your notes. If you can draw that's great, but it's not a requirement.
Anything else I need to know?
Please try to arrive at least 5-10 minutes early if you are not overly familiar with Zoom or haven't used it lately on your device.
