A Thousand Words: Using Effective Visuals in International Student Advising

Friday, June 2
8:30 AM - 9:30 AM
LACC, Room 515A

Due to language limitations and cultural differences, there may be a gap between what international advisers say and what their students understand. Discover how to create and use customized visuals to explain complex ideas or processes, increase comprehension and retention, and bridge the communication gap. No artistic ability needed.
