Teaching Good Visual Design
Good visual design can communicate powerful messages, but it is often overlooked in teacher professional learning. As director of instructional design and personalized learning, Sadie thinks that it’s crucial to teach design basics to teachers, so that teachers can design engaging content for students. In this workshop, we will explore visual design and communication in the classroom. In this workshop, you will engage in activities to learn basic visual design concepts like color, typography, & layout. You will walk away with design skills to put into practice right away, and resources to integrate design into everyday instruction.
