Academic Roundtable - The Pedagogy of the Poster: Using large-format print to encourage student engagement
Pat Zupan, Jonathan Miller-Lane, Caitlyn Myers, and Noah Graham
Please join us on Monday, March 17, 2014 at 12:15 p.m. in Coltrane Lounge (Adirondack House)
Poster sessions are common means of sharing research and project information at academic conferences and our own Spring Student Symposium, but how are they used as a teaching tool? Join us for a lunchtime discussion with faculty from different disciplines– Pat Zupan (Italian), Jonathan Miller-Lane (Education Studies), Caitlyn Myers (Economics), and Noah Graham (Physics)– about their experiences using poster presentations in a course. What works well? What challenges arise? How does this assignment enhance student learning?
Lunch will be served. Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org by noon Friday, March 14.
