Abstract

Poster assignments challenge students to deliver clear and detailed scientific information. Infographics can communicate complex concepts in simple graphical form to broad audiences.
Students presented a physiology project using an infographic online and in print form. Students chose the topic, used free software and were invited to complete an anonymous questionnaire on the experience.
Feedback suggests that simplifying the science was challenging but this format encouraged greater thought and critical analysis of their own work, communicating complex concepts more effectively than traditional posters. This approach has revitalised a physiology project assignment, enthused students and broadened communication and transferable skills.
