Visual Thinking Workshops at MicroAssist

MicroAssist is excited to welcome back Allison Crow of Crow Hill Conversations to our classroom! Her workshops at E-Learning Symposium were so popular that we've opened another session August 3rd! The morning will cover the basics of Visual Thinking, and the afternoon will delve deeper into involved learning and push and pull visual thinking methods. Both sessions will be held at MicroAssist - the first from 8:30 - 12:00, and the second from 1:00 - 4:30.
