How can visual communication help you better share your research?

Join Julia Krolik from Pixels and Plan for a 1-hour introductory workshop discussing best practices for creating and effectively disseminating research-based visual materials. This hands-on session will help you plan and develop impactful visuals.

In this workshop, you will learn:

  • How to engage your audience
  • Some key principles of design and their application in the context of knowledge mobilization
  • Useful tips and resources to facilitate the transformation of initial ideas into beautiful visual communication materials.

Participants should bring a laptop and have access to Powerpoint (2013 or later). A portion of the session will be dedicated to hands-on practice and product development.

This workshop is offered twice in the morning of May 21, 2019. Please register for the 9:30-10:30am session or the 11am-12pm session.

This workshop is hosted by the Community Engaged Scholarship Institute in collaboration with the Research Innovation Office. For any questions, please contact Caroline Duvieusart-Déry.
