- Turn concepts and text blocks into visuals.
- Fine tune your listening skills to create visuals.
As a trainer or a facilitator, your goal is to help your learning audience "get" the content you are delivering as easily as possible. The power of visuals helps enormously, as the brain processes images at a very high rate of speed. If you are a trainer, you may want to prepare some powerful flipcharts or job aids before your class to support your training. If you are a facilitator, you may want to create visuals on the fly as your session progresses. No, you don't have to be an artist to make this effective. Yes, the most important skill is listening. Join the Facilitator's Exchange Special Interest Group (SIG) as we conduct an hands-on session with some practical tools and skills for you to apply in your work.
