As learning professionals, we’re expected to utilize a wide range of skills in the creation of learning content. Whether you’re developing a presentation for an instructor-led class or an eLearning module for an online course, it’s vital that your content is visually pleasing. And while we all know the importance of graphic design in the creation of learning content, graphic design is something that most of us struggle to master!

In this one-day workshop, you’ll explore the basics of graphic design and visual communications, and how to apply these techniques to your learning content. We’ll start by exploring the best practices of using fonts, colors, images, and layouts; and then we’ll practice using these techniques on real content. Best of all, we’ll explore how you can become a better graphic designer by using a graphic design program that most of us already know how to use: PowerPoint!

In this session, you will learn…

  • The essential elements of graphic design, including fonts, colors, images, and layouts.
  • How to use PowerPoint as a graphic design tool.
  • How to visually communicate your learning content and reduce on-screen text.
  • How to design custom graphics in PowerPoint.
