Description

Koen De keersmaecker gives this 1 day training, focusing on learning the bikablo® visualization technique and the translation of your work. Think of being able to present visual presentations, facilitating processes, graphical recording (visual recording) of a meeting or sharing of knowledge in a visual way. No matter how big or small your visual talent is; together, you take the first visual steps with this technique. You work in a small group so the trainer has enough time and space to respond to your questions. Koen gladly takes you to the world of visual thinking and helps you get along with little hints and techniques.

Contents

In a relaxed learning atmosphere, you will experience how easy it is to use small tricks to make large pin board areas striking and lively. The trainer takes a lot of time to introduce you to the secrets of the bikablo visualization technique and to answer your questions:

  • Holding the pen and drawing the line: How do I draw clean lines and structure my space on the flip chart?

  • Graphics and text containers: How do I create simple arrows and connecting elements from basic geometric shapes in order to present related topics? Which text containers (e.g. speech bubbles) can be used to support which kinds of messages?

  • Objects and symbols: How do I draw simple symbols to underline messages? What is essential, what can be left out?

  • Figures: What easy ways does bikablo® provide to draw people, roles, groups and situations?

  • Color and space: What are simple and fast options to color elements and spaces in a quick and simple way that supports the graphic structure?

  • Writing: how do I improve my handwriting on the flip chart to make it more legible and attractive?

  • Posters and settings: How do I combine the ingredients (graphics, writing, symbols, figures, and color) to create to the point visual translations of content and meaningful posters for different purposes (welcome, agenda, instructions, group work)?
