Using Research Poster Presentations

Dr. Joanne Profetto-McGrath and Karen Bulmer Smith, University of Alberta, Canada

This discussion of the use of a research poster to practice critical thinking skills and dispositions  offers a fine example of a teaching strategy that combines collaboration and competition in a context that emphasizes the practice of critical thinking skills. Linking scholarship and teaching has been a hallmark of Dr. Joanne Profetto-McGrath’s academic career. She has been a scholar in the area of critical thinking throughout her career and we recommend her published data based discussions of strengthening the critical thinking skills of explanation and evaluation achieved by linking an evidence base with practice behavior. Dr. Profetto-McGrath’s research program is well linked to her classroom and clinical teaching, for which she has been recognized for excellence on numerous occasions.
