This presentation, originally developed for DevLearn 2013, introduces comics as a flexible means of telling stories, simplifying concepts, and communicating information in a way that can really resonate with people. It’s a medium that’s becoming more and more acceptable to our learners and it’s a medium we as a community aren’t using nearly as often as we should be.
In this presentation, I talk about how you can consider using comics yourself, no matter what content you need to communicate.
First, I point out examples of the specific ways comics have been used for learning and communicating content, often with examples you can easily pick up from Amazon and read on your own.
Then I talk about some basics rules and tips to consider when you go about writing and drawing your own comics.
Finally, I touch on tools that everyone can use to handle the visual aspects of making comics. And yes, I realize that not everyone is a trained artist, so I discuss tools and ideas for every level of comfort with drawing, from tips for people who have been drawing for years to options for people who couldn't draw a stick figure if their life depended on it.
