Kicking off CNIE2014, this year I was head-over-heels-excited to participate in a graphic facilitation workshop led by the amazing Nancy White as a full day pre-conference session. It was a great opportunity to connect with old friends, friends I only knew online (until now) and of course, make new friends.
The day progressed so smoothly and naturally. I love this stuff.
Sylvia & Tracy really can draw!
I discovered the beauty and mess of chalk
We then used the most basic shapes and graffiti walk to create meaning

Nancy shared all her resources, including these laminated sheets of ideas to get us warmed up to try making our own
Then we explored the variety of templates available
and we tried making some of our own for use in our contexts
Tracy and I shared some iPad app tips and tricks
I am blown away by Tracy’s use of 53 paper. Her sketches and use of this app to create templates are pretty incredible, which she posts on Tumblr. (
Note to self: get a link to her Tumblr, where she posts everything!). Here are Lynne’s visual notes from that session.

We then did a break-out session into two groups, one about instructional design and the other about online facilitation
Finally we did a harvest and evaluation of the day using a visual “river of life” map. Really a superb day overall. I have so many more tools to add to my repertoire.
