Target Audience: Academic, Research, Teaching KE and Professional Support Staff

In this workshop Katrina Swanton (Edinburgh Napier University), will discuss her own experience of using sketch-notes to capture and record the key messages from conference sessions. She will draw upon her own practice and that of other visual note-takers to discuss the benefits of a sketch-note approach. Participants will have opportunity to discover or hone their sketching skills, as the workshop will offer many practical hints and tips to give even the most reluctant 'artist' the confidence to give sketch-noting a go.  For an insight into Katrina's approach to sketch-noting, take a look at this short video (https://spark.adobe.com/video/K9OVvUtp2dAH5).
