LS107 Crash Course in Information Graphics for Learning

10:45 AM - 11:45 AM Wednesday, March 22


International North

Do you know how to create an effective diagram? Can you create a graph that tells a story? Because visualizing abstractions can improve comprehension and facilitate learning, an important skill in L&D is the ability to convey abstract concepts and statistics in a meaningful way. But if you don’t know how to design the best type of graphic to meet your learning goal, how will your explanation be a success?

In this session, you’ll explore how people perceive and process information visualizations. You’ll look at different types of information graphics and match them to the learning they best promote. You’ll also examine what goes into designing an information graphic, how to choose an appealing visual style, and some of the resources that are available for information graphic creation.

In this session, you will learn:

  • How visual perception should influence the type of information graphic you choose
  • How to match the graphic type with the learning goal
  • A design process for creating information graphics
  • Where to find resources for designing information graphics

Novice to intermediate designers and developers.

Technology discussed in this session:
Information graphic creation and information graphic tools.
