Working, thinking and learning visually recently has become a field of increasing significance and rapid growth. Visual facilitationcan be seen as the combination and application of text, shapes and imagery to illustrate content and to create meaning in order tosupport the transfer of knowledge and ideas. It makes learning and working more playful and helps us in dealing with complexity. Itincreases common understanding within teams and fosters group engagement and collective memory.Visual language can thus be applied to a large number of activities in the field of (non formal) education and/or learning, such as:Personal notes, flipcharts, presentations, mind-maps, large scale process visualizations, infographics, individual or group templates,etc.During this creative and hands-on training experience we will bring together an international group of 24 educational practitioners– from Austria, Bulgaria, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia, Hungary and Switzerland - active in the field of (non-formal) education who havealready visual facilitation experiences and have a strong motivation to develop further their visual competences and facilitation skillsto support learning and group processes.Through an experiential learning process with practical and theoretical inputs, a strong focus on peer-learning and a huge variety ofinteractive, collaborative and creative tasks and exercises in combination with moments of reflection and feedback the participantswill:- Share experiences and identify learning needs;- Expand competences related to being a visual facilitator of learning;- Improve drawing techniques and visual methods;- Develop further their personal visual vocabulary;- Improve visual thinking skills and presentation techniques;- Develop concrete visual tools for professional application in education and youth work;
