Graphic Recording (also known as scribing or sketchnoting) is a real-time illustration of your conversation created while you talk. It’s a form of note-taking blending words and imagery that evolves through a discussion or presentation, capturing the thoughts and ideas for the audience in the moment. This capture can anchor an audience in a complex topic, particularly in cross-cultural contexts, and is both a valuable recall tool for event participants and for sharing ideas and outcomes with anyone who was not there.
Graphic Recording has many versions; the most popular being with the recorder in front of the room with a large board so the audience can experience the conversation simultaneously audibly and visually, fostering higher impact knowledge absorption and comprehension. It is increasingly done digitally and virtually, live-streamed to screens the group can see, or shared in smaller format videos and images on digital platforms for conferences and group interaction.
