I learn when I take my time. And I learn even better when I draw what I’m learning. I learn best when I share my learning-by-drawing with others.
Fancy words for what I hope to achieve by sharing my drawing might include knowledge translation, visual synthesis, information visualization, graphics for knowledge mobilization, translational graphics, and the like. But what I really want to do is to bring big ideas (including research about very small things) to more people.
A few recent examples of live drawing from public lectures:
“I live on Earth at present, and I don’t know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process — an integral function of Universe.” —R. Buckminster Fuller
Trade School Toronto is an alternative learning project that runs on a barter system. You get to attend amazing classes. Pay for a class with a barter item (like food, supplies or help) that your teacher requests!
This April we’ll be offering these classes:
Conflict Resolution (It’s actually fun!)
