Drawing as a Thinking Process — It's More Than Sketchnoting
Participate and share : Interactive session
Discover how simple drawings can be leveraged beyond capturing information and staying focused during lectures. We'll demonstrate how sketching and visual thinking are used by students to create and refine mental models, make thinking visible and problem-solve. You'll leave with simple techniques to build your confidence in drawing!
