Talking Less, Saying More
Digital illustrations created for a presentation on improving lectures through interactivity by Stephen Beers, from the UW-Extension CEOEL Instructional Design department, presented at the 2017 UW Faculty Symposium.
The script was written in a fable/storybook style, using the illustrations to guide the narrative.

The crowd gathers to learn and share.
The badger chief begins his lecture on digging burrows.
Unfortunately, badger's lecture is overly long and the other animals struggle to pay attention.
"Now, give it a try!" Badger's lecture finally ended, but the animals couldn't remember his tips to proper burrow building.
The hawks inadvertently swallowed too much dirt digging with their beaks.
The squirrels jumped to the last step, tossing straw everywhere and making a huge mess.
As Badger took in the chaos around him, he considered how he could fix it. Suddenly, he was struck with an idea.
He borrowed a quill from Porcupine and wrote outline instructions on the back of his scroll.
He gave each animal group a copy of his notes. Now they all had an easy way to remember his tips on proper burrow building.

Now it was the squirrel chief's turn to teach the other animals about the aspects of trees.
Squirrel divided crowds into smaller groups.
She first demonstrated to the hawks, while the badgers watched and took notes.
Then the badgers had a turn, while the hawks watched.

After their sessions, the animals all got together and shared their newfound tree knowledge.

The hawks were next. All of the animals got a turn to see what it was like to fly.

Then the hawk chief said, "Now you get to show us what you want to see and we will take you there."
Everyone agreed that the world didn’t seem so mysterious now.  Just as important, they had a way to remember what they learned.  They didn’t forget because they didn’t just hear it; they lived it.
