8 July 2020: The Power of Visual Note-taking

Date and Time: The Power of Visual Notetaking

Presenter: Zaid Ali Alsagoff,  AQL Learning Innovation Consultancy (AQL-LIC), Malaysia


In this webinar, we will explore the basics in drawing, notetaking and digital drawing to empower you to take visual notes both conventionally and digitally. Visual notetaking is the most powerful notetaking method for long-term memory, and unleashing your creative mindset. Educators can use it to visualise, simplify and summarise their courses, modules/topics and lectures. Students can use it as a powerful learning, memory and assessment tool. Visual notetaking is also a powerful tool for creativity, storytelling, brain-storming and problem solving.

At the end of this webinar, the participants will be able to:

  • Draw cartoon faces, stick figures, connectors and other elements for visual notetaking; 
  • Strategize notetaking layouts and take visual notes; and
  • Use Autodesk Sketchbook (app) for visual notetaking.
