Poster Sessions

Here is a student engagement technique of poster sessions.  I like this strategy because it engages students on many levels for learning and creates an environment for group work and allows creativity to design and present their work.

In my course it could be done with injection sites, students can illustrate the oral cavity and show nerve innervations, landmarks, anatomy and physiology to how it corresponds with local anesthetic.  It lets them be creative with drawing and layout of the poster and the presentation aspect.  Working in groups will let the students decide who will do what task but still working together on one project.  One student may be delegated to do the presentation while another who is better at drawing will do the illustration.

Different groups can be assigned different injection sites which will be presented to the class when the posters are completed!

I think this would be a great S.E.T in my course!
