Event description

Description

What is Visual Facilitation?

Visual facilitation combines facilitation best practices, visual recording (accurately scribing participants’ words), the use of visual templates, and group process design. Visual facilitation helps groups iterate ideas more quickly and thoroughly, coordinate their work, see organizational processes and systems and create strategies with high levels of buy-in. For mor information, please watch a two minutes Garphic Facilitation at this link.

About The Workshop

We will use proven practices and tools that have been field tested in a wide range of organizations around the world. The workshop introduces models for planning graphics and for thinking about group dynamics along with many listening and visual capture skills, as well as practical considerations as hanging poster paper and managing large wall charts.
