The Visual Toolkit Overview covers the background, research and development of the toolkit as well as a summary of the elements of the Toolkit. The research and development of this Visual Toolkit looked at three key aspects: 1) the current use of visual tools among Sheridan College’s Pilon School of Business faculty, 2) the use of visuals in the current business environment, and 3) the effectiveness of drawing as an educational tool. Evidence of the value of freehand drawing in both business and education supported my focus on developing a toolkit for business educators that centered around hand-drawn imagery. With a goal of preparing students for the business world they are entering, the toolkit was designed to cover multiple ways that drawing and doodling could be used in curriculum to enhance the learning experience for business students.
