Whether online or in-person, good graphic design can build excitement, spark inquiry, and help tell a story. Furthermore, a good design makes a great first impression.

In this session you will learn everything you need to know to create great posters, infographics, newsletters, videos, and more by using the free tools that Canva offers to librarians and teachers. This session will go beyond the nuts and bolts of how to use Canva and dive into further considerations including copyright and accessibility.
