Topics range from the complexities of visual storytelling to communicating effectively during a crisis. Whether you are a service member or civilian, DINFOS Live has lessons to be learned by all.
The Defense Information School (DINFOS) hosts around 2,600 service members in the depths of their hallways, while others log in virtually from all over the world to train as world-class communication professionals for service in the Department of Defense. To support the school's mission and vision, they established DINFOS Live and took to social media to share the unique activities explored at the schoolhouse.
