Abstract

I can now access a PhD dissertation or an article written in some far places miles away through Internet thanks to the technological developments. I can also complete my PhD education at home through a distance learning programme and participate in a meeting online. All these cases are the easiest indicators showing that the "time and space" confines of information have been removed and its access has been eased. We can readily state that this atmosphere formed causes a "Bing Bang" in terms of communication. It has enabled visual messages come into prominence within the communicational process; therefore the educational environments teaching how to design those visual messages have been established and the society has been steered into a period of the visual learning. In this context, this study includes my experience I acquired while giving an elective course during the 2015-2016 autumn period, named "Information Design" in Department of Visual Communication Design in Faculty of Fine Arts in Dumlupinar University. This experience is an interdisciplinary interaction. The objectives of the study are to gather together two different disciplines, namely visual communication and medicine, with the purpose of "composing information design", to establish their work environment, and to convey it by using a narrative method.
