I'm Emily Bryson. I help ELT professionals to harness their super-powers, engage their audiences and stand out from the crowd.

Emily Bryson ELT sketchnote of the benefits of graphic facilitation, each point has a hand drawn icon. Fun. Revive teaching mojo. supportive. aids memory. relaxing. encourage critical thinking. aid understanding. minimise prep time. reduce processing load. clear communication. concept check. boost creativity. multisensory. copyright free images. supports literacy. = it's a superpower.
Here are just some of the ways graphic facilitation should wear a cape and fly!

Let me introduce myself.

I am an ELT author, materials writer, ESOL lecturer, teacher trainer and graphic facilitator. I have 20 years experience in ELT.

I was first introduced to graphic facilitation techniques whilst on secondment at the Scottish Refugee Council. Their training manager used lots of innovative visual tools and collaborative tasks which I’d never seen before in all my ELT training and experience. On my return to the college, I attended a training session with a graphic facilitator who showed me how to draw very simple representations of classroom items to communicate with learners. I was immediately hooked.

Since then, I’ve realised that graphic facilitation is an untapped superpower. I’ve obsessively read as many books, taken as many courses, followed as many experts on social media and studied any research papers I can find.

My classroom, training sessions, writing and even my action research mentoring have become spaces to trial new activities and techniques.

In a nutshell, it works. It’s versatile, communicative, supportive, accessible and is a simple way to amaze people.

I can help you. I’ve recently started sharing my secrets. I now offer online courses and bespoke training.

Read on to find out more and feel free to get in touch with any questions. I’d love to hear from you.
