Week 3 – Using visuals in learning


  • Week 3 – Using visuals in learning

    This week Sarah and Tony led the session exploring how and why being more visual during the learning process is so valuable. I was out of town and watched the replay – it’s a great session!


    • Tony spoke a bit about a favorite resource, Communicating the New: Methods to Shape and Accelerate Innovation by Kim Erwin. Most of the designers in the room held up their own dog eared copies – it’s clearly worth checking out!
    • “Working out loud” is a powerful strategy to build engagement, trust, and collaboration. It can also pose challenges depending on the context – power dynamics, neurodiversity, and personality are all factors that need to be considered.
    • Visual representation of ideas accelerates learning! From diagrams of complex statistical information like Joseph Minard’s graphic of Napoleon in Russia to sketchnoting to amplify your own learning potential – it’s clear that getting more visual is a good thing.
    • Sarah led the group through a simple drawing activity. We started with a set of 5 or 6 fun facts about armadillos – the task was to draw some of the newfound armadillo knowledge in 3 minutes. Everyone created amazing visualizations, had some fun doing it, and are guaranteed to remember more about armadillos than if we’d just talked about it.
