Today we are happy to share a post form our good friend and sketchnoter Rob Dimeo .
He posted on his blog the story about how he discovered sketchnoting, the path he followed, and some valuable tips on how to prepare to make a sketchnote for a scientific seminar that was outside of his own expertise.
Following, some quotes we find particularly interesting.
A Google search on notetaking eventually led me to sketchnoting and personal infodoodling. According to the Sketchnote Army website, “sketchnotes are purposeful doodling while listening to something interesting.” I was intrigued.
These sketchnotes were becoming valuable references for me and the tool of sketchnoting was becoming increasingly important for me in organizational matters. It had become a natural part of my workflow.
It is a much different story when sketchnoting a scientific talk aimed at an expert audience.
Not to miss, his preparation technique for sketchnoting a Scientific Talk.
There are a few specific phases to my sketchnoting workflow, particularly for unfamiliar subjects that are far from my area of research expertise.
I prepare for the talk ...
I take sketchnotes during the talk ...
I refine the notes after the talk ...
I share my sketchnotes ...
These are just quotes, be sure to read the whole article here: "Sketchnoting (and Scientific Talks)" .
Thank you Rob, great read!
