So, in my last post, I was discussing about the variety of assignments that I’ve been having in this semester and I’m going to talk about my just-concluded Poster assignment.
Let me mention first that I had no prior experience in scientific poster-making, therefore, I was quite apprehensive about how to even go about it in the first instance. Fortunately (thanks to our ingenious course supervisors), in addition to providing how-to materials on making posters, we had the opportunity to critique a sample poster and I considered this a great idea. Everyone contributed accordingly and I’m pretty sure it was a highly beneficial exercise and learning experience for us, not just as students but as researchers, scientists and workers in our different fields of work.
Also, I reached out to a fellow ODL student and Nigerian who I “met” on the Facebook ODLEdSoc platform. He is a second year student running a course that I consider similar to mine (MSc International Animal Health) and he was really helpful in giving a few pointers on his own experience with his previous poster assignments. All in all, I tried my possible best in making what I consider very appropriate for some cool high scores.
So, wish me luck with that!
It’s just a few hours away from the next month and I’m sure we all had great times in January and February.
Just to leave this little nugget by Napoleon Hill – “There is one quality which one must possess to win, and that is definiteness of purpose, the knowledge of what one wants, and a burning desire to possess it”.
I hope this motivates someone for the month of March and beyond.
