Posters! Small Learning, Big Results
Posters have been established as an effective and innovative tool in students’ active engagement, academic success, and retention. They can introduce critical thinking (especially metacognitive practices) and create learning communities in our classes. Above all, posters can be a most rewarding alternative to mundane students’ end-of-term presentations. This 50-minute session offers informative, interactive, entertaining, and applicable uses for posters in freshman and sophomore college courses. Although Humanities is my discipline, I will demonstrate the way undergraduate posters can easily be adapted to other disciplines. I will share my first poster-experience: the challenges, pitfalls, compromises, and, above all, rewards.
