** ALERT ** This Session has been rescheduled, from Mon Mar 16 to Mon Mar 23. The new location is listed below.
Ever wonder about making sketchnotes that are larger-than-life?*
At this session we'll practice working BIG on whiteboards and large paper!
We'll start with a quick intro to large-format visual notetaking, do some warm-ups and then live capture TED talks. Between each talk we'll have a 'round-the-room gallery to learn from each other and discuss our process.
If you're new to sketchnoting, this is a big and brazen way to get started. For folks with visual notetaking experience, this is a fantastic way to expand your personal practice and experiment with how to work in large-format. All skill levels welcome!
* Pssst: working big is called Graphic Recording (http://graphicfacilitation.blogs.com/), which is a technique similar to sketchnoting, but BIG.
