- exploration of own visual style and development of custom visual vocabularies;
- co-design of a visual toolbox to use in daily work.
You will experience:
- a balanced approach between theory inputs and practical exercises;
- a greater understanding of the impact and value of visual facilitation in group processes;
- interactive and engaging online sessions with practicing visual facilitators;
- peer-to-peer learning & feedback in a safe environment;
