'The Infographics course was engaging and informative: I learned a great deal and can't wait to get started making infographics of my own'
'It was a really insightful event, which made me think about how and when to use infographics before trying to create some. I learnt a lot in a day, which I now understand to be essential knowledge in planning and creating infographics'
'I recently attended a new Introduction to Infographics 1 day training programme at the university. It was really useful in helping me to understand the importance of creating a storyboard for the effective dissemination of research findings. The trainer was very knowledgeable and shared lots of useful resources and helpful tips on how to develop one's expertise in using infographics to good effect'.
