Perhaps you're fed up with powerpoint, itching to try something new or have simply heard about the many benefits of using graphics and want to try them out for yourself.
At first hand drawn graphics may seem daunting, particularly if you believe you're 'no good at drawing' or 'not artistic'. Remember when it comes to using graphics in a learning setting the goal is to get a message across and draw out ideas, not to impress the group with your flair for fine art.
Here are five quick ways you can introduce hand drawn graphics into your training:
Start off by drawing a person on a piece of flip chart paper (a stick man is absolutely fine!) and give the group some post-it notes.
Ask the group to jot down what they've learned (head), how they're feeling (heart) and what actions they're going to put in place (feet), and invite them to put their post-it notes on the appropriate place on the person you've drawn. (If, like me, you have a penchant for post-its you can even get some head, heart, feet shaped ones. Yes, I do get excited about such things...)
So there you have it, three quick ways to introduce hand drawn graphics into your training design and delivery. Have a go with one or more of the above suggestions and do let me know how you get on.
