Suddenly, < POW!> we have a slew of tools to choose from to author learning content, but creating a unique user experience that engages our learners is vastly important and relies on our skills as storytellers. We can improve our learning content storytelling skills using comic book theory. Using special tricks and tips from comic books and graphic novels, we will create a unique user experience, no matter which authoring tool or platform you use.

Attendees will gain keen insight on how to improve creative storytelling skills utilizing comic book theory to develop engaging learner-centric content. Participants will also learn the "language" of comics, graphic novels, and sequential art and how they effectively communicate within the visual milieu. Finally, attendees will go see real-world examples of how to implement these new-found storytelling skills in learning content.‬‬
