Course Description: Learn in a hands-on environment–in the large group and break-out groups, to critique, rewrite and create materials that get your health and wellness information across quickly and clearly. We’ll review the disconnect between information providers and information seekers, the process of educating adults, the success of “plain language” initiatives and the importance of text, type, graphics, space and layout. In this workshop you will also be provided brochure examples, SMOG and REALM tests, a webliography and links to other training. During the workshop you will edit pieces so that at the conclusion you’ll have new awareness, new skills, a new product and access to further resources. Clear health communication is the goal, regardless of medium.
