Verena Paepcke-Hjeltness, Assistant Professor, Industrial Design demonstrates (and researches) how sketchnoting is a design-visualization methodology that provides a framework for students to communicate visually by allowing them to break down complex forms and concepts into combinations of dots, lines, squares, triangles and circles. The simplicity of these shapes promotes this pedagogical tool’s use for skilled and non-skilled drawers alike.
Sketchnoting for visual note taking and more
Meets on the following Wednesdays: April 4, 11 & 18th (12:10 - 1:30 p.m., 0074 Armory)
Paepcke-Hjeltness will show you the essentials of Sketchnoting, a pattern-based notetaking strategy that actively engages learners. Participants will learn the basics of Sketchnoting, start building their own simple image libraries, and discuss ways to implement low fidelity visual maps of what they see, hear, and think. No artistic talent is required. You will leave this session with concrete ways to break linear thinking barriers for yourself and your students.
