Several months ago, I picked up Sunni Brown's book The Doodle Revolution. She encourages the melding of verbal and visual elements for personal note taking. I tried her approach (sort of) at a recent seminar and must say I found myself more engaged with the speaker (she was truly dynamic in her own right) and think I remembered more of the presentation because I let myself take notes in a way other than outline form.
Doodle Revolutionaries also are using some of Ms. Brown's techniques in meetings and presentations. The idea is that the person writing on a large poster or whiteboard uses simple "icons" and words so that ideas become both more clear and attached with emphasis and feeling.
I think I'd like to learn more about how the technique works. Maybe I could offer new found skill at meetings I participate in and also use it in my own personal notations.
