April 01, 2020

Video & Media

Instructional designers often need to approach projects keeping both instructional and graphic design in mind. You might have good instincts on what looks nice, but don't know why certain graphic and layouts support learning while others don't. You also need to be able to quickly review and update visuals without diluting the key instructional messages of the content or distracting from the learner's experience.

The good news is you don't need a graphic design degree to create great looking visual content. Simple tools such as PowerPoint are becoming more robust with graphic design features, so you don't need an expensive suite of high-end programs‚ just the right design principles to apply. In this session, you will learn about six graphic design principles; contrast, repetition, alignment, proximity, similarity, and symmetry‚ and how to apply them. We'll talk about how to create visuals that don't just look good but also effectively communicate content and facilitate learning. Come prepared to apply what you'll learn and do some hands-on editing of a slide that needs some love and attention, and walk away knowing how to quickly evaluate and critique a visual design.

In this session, you will learn:

  • The six core graphic design principles
  • How those principles can support learning
