Join us as we explore ways that graphic design principles help us to create user-friendly instructional environments. Get hands- on experience applying visual design strategies to a sample eLearning lesson. These principles apply to a wide variety of situations, such as creating a PowerPoint or a training Job Aid. Learn ways to create learning experiences that are uncluttered and inviting.

Snacks and beverages will be available.
