Join my upcoming course in Graphic Facilitation for ELT professionals: Engaging Learners with Simple Drawings.
My current course is sold out. Join my mailing list for visual teaching ideas, drawing tips and updates on the next courses.
I'm Emily Bryson. I help ELT professionals to harness their super-powers, engage their audiences and stand out from the crowd.
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 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.
Do you want to…?
…stand out from the crowd?
…do something different?
…deliver lessons that really engage and support your learners/trainees?
…be a pioneer of graphic facilitation in the ELT world?

The weeks flew by and once I got to the end, I found that I was using Emily’s ideas and helpful guidance in lots of different aspects of my working life.
I’m really glad I signed up for the course, because it’s given me an extra little spring in my step as a writer and trainer.
Everything you want from a course – inspiring, creative, interactive, endlessly useful. It has had an immediate and lasting impact on my practice.
Emily’s course was a great mix of practical and theoretical, with lots of shared resources for further reading and watching.
I now draw something almost every day.
