Milly Sonneman, Pioneer Practitioner, Hands-on-Graphics
is a graphical facilitation tool that uses the impact of visualisation in assisting groups to picture their ideas and their understanding of their context through the use of a pre-designed visual metaphor. As a facilitation technique, the facilitator enhances their role as a "graphic recorder", whereby they impartially guide the participants "see" what they know, ask questions to clarify understanding, and as a result make better informed decisions and conclusions. Armed with colourful water-based markers, pastels and chalk with the pre-made templates, for organizing group member’s thoughts, the facilitator graphically records information.
