Creating a Whiteboard Video
Preconference Spotlight Session
2:00 PM - 6:00 PMWed
Stacey Dickert, MA
Gary Ashwal, MA
This hands-on workshop will introduce attendees to writing and production strategies for creating whiteboard animations. The workshop will be oriented around guiding attendees through a full production process of actually creating t heir own videos from writing through editing! Two important features of the whiteboard style are simple visual metaphors and plain-language narration. The focus on visuals makes the style a useful tool for teaching patients with low literacy skills or limited English proficiency. Attendees will watch and discuss examples of whiteboard videos for patient education, and they will learn tips and strategies for writing and producing their own videos.
