About the session

Learn how to transform your meetings, facilitation, engagement and retention, and critical decisions beyond a ten-page notes document by creating your own doodle book.

Join this fun, interactive session for tricks to re-engage teams, reinvent your meetings based on learning styles, and reduce repetition through an easy visual vocabulary of sketch thinking to capture big ideas with simple drawings.

This session is for anyone working within a cross-team setting, leaders of teams, or facilitators of meetings. The topic is scaled to include activities for all levels of Agile and drawing practitioners and includes left and right brain styles.

Participant takeaways

  • IDENTIFY and explain two different adult learning styles and how drawing increases learning retention based on learner style.
  • EXPERIMENT with different communication styles and supporting visual techniques to capture information, concepts, and actions.
  • EVALUATE and then CREATE learning style-specific activities with revised facilitation techniques using new visual vocabulary-doodles from class to be used at work or home.
  • ASSEMBLE and fill a personal “doodle-book” of useful sketch-thinking icons for future doodling fun!
