Event description

Description

This experimental Studio Session will focus our attention on Systems Thinking as applied to scribing.

Many of us have been exposed to areas of Systems Thinking while scribing, but how are we taking the knowledge and bringing it back into how we listen, how we make choices, how we represent ideas? Beyond mapping out these concepts when referenced, how are we explicitly incorporating mental models, feedback loops, behavioral graphs, and leverage points into our thinking while at a wall, poised to draw for others?

This will be a unique occasion to pool our resource and push the boundaries of what we know, together. The proposed structure for the day is based on a traditional learning loop:


  • Explore: Scan what the group knows; Download experience
  • Decide: What to dive into; Who shares what; Agree on specific process
  • Do: Share knowledge; Apply into practice
  • Reflect: Observe what we have experienced through personal journaling; Walk through our drawings and thoughts; Debrief
  • Make Sense: Converse; Document Insights; Identify what to explore next

We will come together to learn from the past – what we have done individually – and then venture into what we might embrace as new possibility for our visual practice at large. One intent of the session will be to document what we do along the way, and share our insights back with the broader community of scribes.


PARTICIPATION

This session is intended specifically for practitioners with working experience in live graphic facilitation, since this will be a very specific dive into a very specific topic and application. Please let Kelvy know if you have ideas for future sessions that would be relevant for your particular field of practice.
