Schole: A Journal of Leisure Studies and Recreation Education, v29 n1 2014
This paper considers what is known and extends the knowledge about the value of using posters in tertiary student assessment. It carries out a literature review before considering academic staff and student feedback on poster presentations, highlighting the rationale for using them, challenges in implementing posters as a form of assessment, and student responses to posters as a summative assessment tool. The paper concludes with recommendations based on our findings for those considering using posters and opportunities for further pedagogical research in this increasingly popular tool within the field of hospitality and tourism management.
