A Peer Review Guide for Poster Assignments

THIS PAGE IS CO-AUTHORED BY DOUG FOXGROVER AND KATHY EVERTZ, CARLETON COLLEGE.
This material was developed as part of the Carleton Teaching Activity Collection and is replicated on a number of sites as part of the SERC Pedagogic Service Project

Summary

THIS ACTIVITY PROVIDES BOTH FACULTY AND STUDENTS THREE DOCUMENTS:
(1) A HANDOUT THAT DESCRIBES THE KEY COMPONENTS OF A POSTER SO STUDENTS CAN MAKE WELL-DESIGNED, AND RHETORICALLY WELL-INFORMED CHOICES ABOUT DESIGN AND CONTENT; (2) A RUBRIC FOR EVALUATING STUDENT POSTERS; (3) A GUIDE STUDENTS CAN USE WHEN THEY ARE ASKED TO PROVIDE REVISION FEEDBACK TO THEIR PEERS WHO ARE IN THE PROCESS OF CREATING POSTERS.

Learning Goals

BOTH STUDENTS AND FACULTY WILL LEARN ABOUT THE MAJOR ELEMENTS OF A POSTER. FACULTY WILL LEARN HOW TO ASSIGN AND EVALUATE POSTERS. STUDENTS WILL LEARN HOW TO PROVIDE EFFECTIVE FEEDBACK TO THEIR PEERS DURING THE DRAFTING AND REVISION STAGES OF POSTER PRODUCTION.

Context for Use

These handouts/guides will be appropriate for any course in which students produce posters and in which those posters are developed during a drafting and revising process.
