Academic Roundtable – The Pedagogy of the Poster: Using large-format print to encourage student engagement

Categories: For Faculty, For Staff

Please join us on Monday, March 17, 2014 in the Coltrane Lounge at 12:15 p.m.

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? Note different location for this roundtable. Lunch will be provided.

Lunch will be served. Please RSVP to dbernier@middlebury.edu by noon Friday, March 14.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Teaching, Learning, and Research and Library & Information Services.
