The ability to communicate effectively is a critical skill for academic and career success. Poster sessions are an effective medium for developing students' communication skills. In contrast to paper presentations, poster sessions promote student interaction, engagement, and discussion. Moreover, the process of preparing aides in developing students' written communication skills as they must be concise and judicious about the information they include on the poster. In this lecture, I will discuss how I incorporated a student poster session into my practicum course and provide strategies on using posters to assess student knowledge.
