Diagrams have been helping people for thousands of years across industries, fields and cultures. It seems like diagrams are everywhere if you are paying attention. But when were we taught to diagram? And were we ever taught how to know if a diagram is any good? For too many people, the answers are never and no.
In this half-day workshop you will learn the purpose, process and craft of diagramming with a core focus on useful starting points, words of advice and level-ups for your next diagram.
Students will be asked to bring a diagram to class so fellow students can critique them. We will be using a B.I.N.G.O card based on principles from the lecture material. Bringing diagrams from your past is not required but is VERY encouraged.
