Corrie wants to make your meet-ups MORE: More productive, more interactive, more creative, more fun.
(Also LESS: Less boring, less confusing, and less stressful for you!)
Instructional designer, curriculum developer, facilitator, trainer, and graphic recorder, Corrie Melanson has more than twenty years of experience leveraging creative visual tools and genuine interaction to spark action and accelerate learning — both online and off.
In Corrie’s courses, you’ll hear what she does, see what she does, and most important of all: learn to do what she does. And when the laughter, sharing, insight, and hands-on practice is done, you’ll be ready to hit the ground running.
Based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada, Corrie co-founded See Meaning Graphic Facilitation and Consulting in 2009. Since then, her professional practice has grown to include working with diverse communities and organizations on innovative and complex initiatives, including:
- strategic planning and visioning;
- program design, facilitation, and evaluation;
- knowledge transfer and mobilization;
- community asset mapping and capacity building; and
- curriculum design and training.
In addition to an undergraduate degree in international development, Corrie holds a Master’s in Lifelong Learning from Mount Saint Vincent University and certificates in adult education, facilitation, appreciative inquiry, conflict resolution, participatory evaluation, and graphic facilitation. Corrie is an active member of the International Association of Facilitators, the Canadian Institute for Performance and Learning, the International Forum of Visual Practitioners, and the Canadian Association for the Study of Adult Education. In 2011, Corrie co-founded Rainbow Refugee Association of Nova Scotia (RRANS) to support and sponsor LGBTQI+ refugees. She has also worked as a project manager and executive director in the non-profit sector and as an organic farmer in rural Nova Scotia.
