When you visualize abstract ideas, you make the ideas easier for people to understand. When you use visual metaphors, you make content seem familiar. An important skill in L&D is the ability to make meaning through visuals—and diagrams, charts, graphs, and timelines can help.

In this session, you’ll explore how people perceive and process information graphics. 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:

  • From surprising research about perception and processing of information graphics
  • How to match your learning goals with the right type of information graphic
  • A design process for creating information graphics
  • Where to find free resources to help with information graphic design

Novice to intermediate designers and developers.

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