“Harnessing the Power of Design”

Date and Time: 
Sunday, 18 October 2015 - 1:30pm - 3:30pm
Speaker: 
Cameron Romney

Many teachers give handouts of some sort in the classroom. Whether these are syllabi, activities or homework, the content of the handout is only half of the document. The other half is the visual elements: graphics, page layout, typography, etc. While lots of thought and energy went into the creation of the content, often the visual elements of the document are ignored.
