Visual Thinking


This four-hour workshop supports participants to use visual thinking to: amplify the thinking process, focus better and for longer while presenting; and communicate ideas more quickly, clearly, and tangibly. Visual Thinking is a method commonly used in board rooms and at conferences because it: supports the learning process, levels language barriers, stimulates communication, activates and captivates your audience.  

After this training participants will be able to present ideas and designs with the help of visualization. This skill is useful in online or offline presentations to make the message clearer.  


Please note that Visual Thinking is not a drawing workshop! You don’t need to have any drawing experience, only a computer and internet. 

You will be trained in visual thinking by using sufficient examples of images, doing practical exercises like making sketch notes and using existing images to transfer information. Your sense of perception and visualisation will be trained. 

During the workshop you are introduced to the subject. Practical exercises and visual footage will help you train visual thinking, learn to make sketch notes and use images to transfer information. At the end of the session you’ll receive an assignment to prepare a presentation with the help of visualisation. 
During the presentation of your fellow students, you’ll make sketch notes. Participants receive peer and tutor feedback and individual questions/problems are addressed. 


This training consists of a single session.
