Your brain processes information in pictures, so why not deliver learning content in graphic form? Infographics are all the rage in social media because they convey a lot of information quickly and help the audience recognize patterns, connections and themes much more quickly than would be possible with text and/or audio. In this webinar we'll explore the neuroscience of infographics and why they work. You'll learn a simple step-by-step process for creating your own infographics as well as a list of "dos and don'ts" to ensure that your next infographic is an effective learning tool. 

In this session we'll explore how facilitators can:

  • tap into the subconscious instincts of your audience to gain and hold attention    
  • motivate your audience to take action    
  • convey complex information in visual form to make it easier to remember    
  • use infographics in your own marketing and education programs
