Sketchnoting science at EMBL-EBI with Dr. Jenny Cham - Cambridge, UK

Working in an international environment is an excellent experience, and comes with some built-in challenges - language, for one. Visual communication can make a big difference, and smooth the edges of cross-team collaboration. It's also a great way to produce compelling graphics and figures in reports. Dr. Jenny Cham, User Experience Lead at EMBL-EBI, uses sketchnoting in her work. “Sketchnoting can be a very powerful tool for getting across the main points of a workshop or presentation,” she says. “It can help people reach a common understanding, and reinforce the take-away message. Sketchnoting can help you remember a workshop better, and share the inspiration with your colleagues who may have missed it."

Jenny posts her sketchnotes on her blog and in a Flickr gallery. and specialises in sketchnoting scientific and pharmaceutical R&D talks and workshops.

Our event will take place at EMBL-EBI, Wellcome Genome Campus, Cambridge, UK.

At tea break on Wednesday 11th Jan, Jenny from EMBL-EBI will show some of her sketchnotes, give a short demonstration of how it works, and field questions. Everyone is welcome. If you have sketchnotes of your own, please bring them along!

Follow Jennifer on Twitter for more info on this event.

Sketchnote with Lorraine Kasyan - Buncombe County, NC

She wrote:

I am a digital learning facilitator for ten schools in Buncombe County, NC. I plan to promote the day through my work in classrooms and will organize through the media coordinators at my schools and in individual classrooms. I am hoping to gather examples of sketchnoting (edusketching) from multiple content areas to share in my work with teachers.

What is World Sketchnote Day?

In 2007, Mike Rohde coined the term "sketchnote" and over the years it was adopted by a huge number of people around the world.

We want to gather our friendly and welcoming community of sketchnoters around a bonfire for one day to share our love for sketchnotes and to express our sketchnote-nerdyness and sometimes obsession for our tools.

World Sketchnote Day IS for everyone, from beginners to experts, and enthusiasts to professionals. If you can create marks on paper, you are welcome to join us!

Sketchnote Army is facilitating this event to say thank you to the sketchnote community.

For 2017 edition we would like to create an online Agenda of events both online and in real life across the world, we are als looking for sponsors and patrons.

If you would like to be an active part of a World Class Sketchnote Event just fill the following form: we'll get in touch with you soon to go through your idea!

Can't wait to hear from you!
