Science Friday: the current epidemic of trees! Thank you for reopening the #coconinonationalforest this week. We still need to be mindful of the potential for wildfires. Be careful out there people!⠀ ⠀ #sketchyourscience #fireecology #forestecology #forestry #visualthinking #climatechange #graphicrecording #illustration #graphicfacilitation #flagstaffaz #ponderosapine #firescar #crossdating #molinecreative #sciencefriday
Two meeting monsters: cell phone interruptions and explosive frustration. Setting clear expectations and agreeing on goals at the start of the meeting can help keep these at bay.⠀ ⠀ #interactionassociates#visualcommunication #leadership #workshop #professionaldevelopment #flagstaffaz #leadershiptraining #communicationtraining #sketchnotes #livedrawing #deathbypowerpoint #visualthinking #experientialeducation #molinecreative
When I worked as an outdoor educator (and now as a graphic facilitator), I always carry a stash of the good stuff when I'm working. Chocolate does a soul good!

Science Friday: I went to the Science on Tap talk last night at the Green Room. Learned a lot about megafires... did you know that wildfire smoke is not regulated by the Clean Air Act, but the smoke from prescribed or managed wildland fires is?⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀#wildfire #forestecology #firescience #sciencefriday #sketchyourscience #brainscience #lizardbrain #neuroscience #visualthinking #visualsciencetranslation #visualcommunication #academe #researchscience #scientificresearch #molinecreative

When we talk about leadership, it’s important to acknowledge everything that happens below the waterline. There is a tendency to go to the deepest depths of blame when a team faces a problem (e.g., she’s a poor time manager or he’s not competent in his role) but it’s more likely that the root of the problem lies in the team structure or group process. #waterlinemodel #groupprocess #teamdynamics #fishing #visualthinking #leadership #molinecreative #facilitation #handdrawn

I got to illustrate a great story that a client told during a recent workshop. I got the plane wrong (it was probably not this big!) but I got the key ideas right. Good thing he didn't actually crash into the Pacific Ocean.

Science Friday: What's your vision for the #arts and #sciences in #flagstaffaz in 2023? This #strategicvision workshop came up with a lot of really good ideas. My favorites were igniting the #passion for the arts and sciences as well as promoting #steam to tourists.⠀ ⠀ ⠀ ⠀ #visualcommunication #leadership #workshop #professionaldevelopment #flagstaffaz #leadershiptraining #communicationtraining #sketchnotes #livedrawing #deathbypowerpoint #visualthinking #experientialeducation #molinecreative

My #visualcommunication workshop participants and I played a new game last week. Squiggle Birds (ala Visual Thinking for Design by Colin Ware) was super fun and fast paced. They even tricked out their birds at the end of the game.

I just read an article in my local newspaper about my plumber! He saved another contractor at a job site by using CPR. He used the hands only method and they guy responded and is recovering. #happynews ⠀ ⠀ Disco CPR: It is hard for me to think of the song Staying Alive without thinking of CPR practice!

I got to follow the Griswolds to the North Rim the other day. Swipe for the full experience! #visualthinking #molinecreative #graphicfacilitation #bison #vacation #griswold #grandcanyon #northrim
It’s a long hike from the river to the rim... a five year planning process for this visual metaphor. The interesting thing about facilitating with this template is the ongoing debate about whether the sun is the threat or the rain clouds are. It’s so dry here now that I vote for the sun. #graphicrecording #molinecreative #graphicfacilitation #visualthinking #visualcommunication #grandcanyon

A friend was telling me about an informal philanthropic organization that does good deeds for people like secretly paying off people’s layaway balances and putting money into library books. #goodpeople #philanthropy #artistsofig #molinecreative
I’m working on a workbook to use with students in my #visualcommunication workshops. Right now I am focusing on the difference between visuals that focus on the process (most of what I do) versus the product. #processvsproduct #molinecreative #graphicrecording #graphicfacilitation #visualthinking
Strategic planning... Grand Canyon style! This is the second employee workshop to help identify key issues that will face the canyon in the next five years. #graphicrecording #strategicplanning #molinecreative #valuesclarification #swot
Science Friday: I now make my living somewhere between art and science by translating scientific information into visual language. Here are a couple of my past pieces - a paper on the genetics of dragonfly viruses and a painting of the dragonfly population we studied for the paper.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #dragonfly #odonate #odonata #cyclovirus #genetics#sciencefriday #sketchyourscience #brainscience #lizardbrain #neuroscience #visualthinking #visualsciencetranslation #visualcommunication #academe #researchscience #scientificresearch #molinecreative

I had an upset stomach (or small intestine 🤢) on my trip to Guanajuato in March. I left an offering at an altar to Santa Maria in a public restroom that I urgently used while I was there... it was the last urgent trip to the restroom during my trip.

Backpacking as a metaphor for strategic planning... visual process work (there are just as many strengths, you just can’t see them from this angle). #graphicfacilitation #strategicplanning #molinecreative #nationalpark #dotvote
Content = egg.⠀ Process = frying.⠀ ⠀ The relationship between content and process can be confusing when you first start facilitating meetings. I love this metaphor from #andyblack ⠀ ⠀ Alternate content: bacon or ham⠀ Alternate process: boiling, steaming, poaching ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #strategicplanning #swotanalysis #effectivemeetings #facilitation #interactionassociates #visualcommunication #sketchnotes #flagstaffaz #graphicrecording #graphicfacilitation #visualthinking #molinecreative
Who needs a MS thesis project topic? I was just reflecting on this inspiring talk by my friend at #nomadadventures in Perak, Malaysia during #offseas . She and her village are calling for a full #environmentalassessment of a small scale hydro project on the #kampar river. When I first heard her story, I thought “but small hydro projects are good” and the she explained that this project will nearly dry 4 km of the river in a rural area where villagers rely on its flow for food, drinking water, and irrigation. The communities have no economic power, so this project is being pushed through without the proper environmental analysis. Even if this one project has a small impact, the larger development project is $18 billion ringet (I think I’ve got that right) so the cumulative impacts need to be studied. The local rafting companies have all turned their backs on the villagers because this development is upstream of the stretch that they run with clients. #mastersthesisproject #saveourstreams #americanrivers #damnation #riverrafting #malaysia #perak #asiaisamazing #streamecology #environmentalscience #molinecreative #sketchnotes #graphicrecording #internationalschool

I’m heading into my risk management extravaganza in Singapore this week... here’s to hoping they like the visuals (and that they help the group place the information in space and time!)⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #riskmanagement #wilderness #backpacking #outdoored #outdooreducation #optoutside #wrmc #boyscouts #experientiallearning #aee #RM101 #educatewild #molinecreative #freeworkshop #visualcommunication #sketchnotes #flagstaffaz #graphicrecording #graphicfacilitation #visualthinking #molinecreative
Willie Unsoeld was once asked by a fearful parent if he could guarantee her son’s safety on an Outward Bound course. No, he told her. But by sheltering her son from risk, he added, she would guarantee the death of his soul. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ Some high risk activities - like drinking in the field, sleeping in mixed gender tents, consensual amorous relationships, and driving school vans - are often regulated by protocols so instructors don’t have to make choices in the field.⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #riskmanagement #wilderness #backpacking #outdoored #outdooreducation #optoutside #wrmc #boyscouts #experientiallearning #aee #RM101 #educatewild #molinecreative
And to recap: think through the risk management cycle, have your students help you manage risk in the field, have an emergency evacuation plan and on call system, get first aid training... and periodically watch RM101: Introduction to Risk Management by Educate Wild.com⠀ ⠀ I’m working on my field course risk management workshop for #offseas in Singapore later this week.

I'm headed to the other side of the world today to contribute to the #OFFSEAS conference in Singapore.

What constitutes a low risk / high risk activity on field courses? Social science research defines low risk as "posing no more risk than everyday life"... but sometimes the learning value is worth taking a bit more risk.⠀ ⠀ I’m working on my field course risk management workshop for #offseas in Singapore next month.

Don't fear that fanny pack! (Yes, I understand that means something different in the UK than it does in the USA - sorry!).

When you wish upon a star...⠀ ⠀ I live in Flagstaff, Arizona. Flagstaff is a Dark Sky City because we have an observatory and want to protect the nighttime view. The darkness provides a constant connection to the sky. Sometimes I like to use my stargazer app during the day or look at the other side of the earth. It is a good reminder that the stars are always there whether we can see them or not.⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ @lowellobservatory #darkskycity #darksky #stargazing #wishonastar #goodluck #twinkletwinkle#selfcarecards #selfcare #teaching #outdooreducation #staysane #staymotivated #art #dailydoodle #inspiration #meditation #artistsofig #visualthinking #sketchnotes #handdrawn #illustration #visualcommunication #graphicfacilitation #wordstoliveby #molinecreative #flagstaffaz
