CATL workshop on visualizing course concepts - Feb. 20

We’ll look at sample activities and student work before considering other places in the curriculum that might benefit from this type of activity.

Deliberate Doodling: Visualizing Course Concepts with Sketchnotes
Thursday, Feb. 20, 12:30-1:45 p.m.
Belk Pavilion 200

In Sketchnotes (2013), Mike Rodhe suggests that we engage more fully with material if we use simple doodles to focus and structure key ideas and concepts. Built off a strong foundation of visual coding theory, these methods seem to naturally fit our engaged learning environment. In this session, I’ll share how I used Sketchnotes in an introductory statistics class and the benefits it had on student learning. Overall, students were more engaged with the text, could scan the content for meaningful metaphors, and had more opportunities to discuss and share ideas among small groups. We’ll look at sample activities and student work before considering other places in the curriculum that might benefit from this type of activity. Lunch is provided.
