Promoting Research to the Masses: Assessing the Impact of a Poster Walk
Adkins, Denise R.; Lyon, Julie S.
International Journal for the Scholarship of Teaching and Learning, v6 n2 Article 19 Jul 2012
Poster sessions are often used to educate communities. In this paper, we describe a project in which students summarized research findings on child development issues in poster form and showcased their work to the campus community. Through a variety of assessments, we show that poster walk participants not only enjoyed the event but also became more knowledgeable about child development issues.
