Transcript of LCB003 Poster Guide

50 cm
Your full names, Tutor's name, Unit Code and Title, Semester & Year
Topic Number and Short Title
This is the poster commentary. Here you should write a 900 word essay commentary on the set topic and your pictoral response to it. This discussion should be supported by reference to relevant literature and the outcomes of your field research.

Double spacing is helpful, and you may like to staple multiple sheets here if you are short on space.
Field Research
Here is where you report on your field research and how it relates to your commentary. (300 words)

In this chapter, O’Brien argues that the new, postmodern times in which we are now living are not just giving students a different sort of education, although this is certainly the case as can be seen

This is the Annotated Bibliography. Here you should list, alphabetically by author’s last name, five (5) ACADEMIC works you used to research the topic and inform the poster response. Three (3) of the entries (including at least one reading or textbook chapter) must be annotated. Underneath this bibliography, add the heading, Interviews and Observations, where you will cite details of your field research.
Your annotations will be approximately 100 words each (= 300 words)

...Postmodern times and the new intellectual understandings they make possible are first of all examined by O’Brien. This is then followed by an analysis of the new work order itself. I found this section quite useful in my research for this project because it describes the way in which work was organised around industrial production methods in the early decades of the 20th Century. Termed “Fordism”, this regime of work incorporated
This is the Pictorial Section of the poster. Here you should directly address the set question through carefully arranged and labelled photos, sketches, collage of images, cartoons and graphs or tables (limit of one graph or table).

Remember: the poster must be able to be folded flat in half and then in half again.
Remember you need to refine your question, as discussed in the tutorials.

Suggestions for Preparing and Writing the Commentary:

The Commentary is a 900-word essay response to the set topic. The most important thing to keep in mind when planning and drafting the Commentary is that it must answer the set question. In doing so, the Commentary, like any scholarly “essay”, must refer to both the research literature (either directly, as a brief quote, or indirectly, as a reference) and to the outcomes of your completed field research (e.g., “For the retired teacher interviewed for this project, teaching geography meant teaching about the British Empire.”). This is done in order to provide support for, and illustrations of, the claims that are being made.

In answering the question, the commentary should say, at a few points in the discussion, how some of the pictures in the poster are an attempt to illustrate the point being made (e.g., “The photograph of the school built in the 1920s illustrates this point.”).

The key thing to always remember is that LCB003 takes a socio-cultural perspective. No matter which topic you choose, in this unit you should always be mindful that social, cultural and political factors impact on children, schools, education and/or teaching. If you’re not sure what this means, ask your tutor to remind you. Bring your questions up in tutorials so everyone can benefit. You don’t want to go down the wrong path.
The field study activity is a Queensland College of Teachers requirement.

Directly below the Commentary, under a separate heading, is where you need to write your 300 word field research section. Here you should briefly identify the nature of the field experience, and the dates the research was conducted.

In the field research section, you are to engage with the ‘real world’ in some way to see if what you find confirms, refutes or enriches what you’ve been reading and hearing on your topic. This might involve interviewing someone (a teacher, a student, someone who works with children) on your topic (this can be by phone or email), or it might mean observation in a particular setting. It might even mean analysing text (eg children’s television shows). This first year field experience is not a ‘school’ visit – these come later in your course. You’ll be given some more ideas in tutorial time. The purpose of the field study component in EDB001 is to introduce you to the application of research to the ‘real world’. It is designed to encourage you to observe, reflect on, and discuss your newly acquired ideas. In your first year of study, you will begin to understand how theory and practice are related in your future career.

The information gathered using these techniques constitutes the field “data” for the poster project. Although your field research is on a very small scale (one interview and/or field observation), it is still important for you to be ethical in the conduct of your research. Please, ensure that you:

•Negotiate interview questions with the interviewee. Any interview you conduct should be more unstructured than structured; that is, it should be more of a conversation with points for discussion than a formal “Q&A” (Question and Answer session). Share these points for discussion with your interviewee before you begin; be prepared to delete any your interviewee doesn’t want to discuss. Also, put your interviewee at ease; don’t confuse them with jargon. There is no need to audiotape the interview, but you should take interview notes and copy down a few useful “direct quotes”.

•Obtain permission to observe a field site or to participate in its business. You should do the same to see records, files and so forth or to use photographs of people, organisations and the like.

•If someone has been particularly helpful, thank them in writing for assisting you in your professional development. If uncertain about your approach, consult with your QUT tutor.
Suggestions for Preparing the Pictorial Section
The pictorial section is a visual response to the set topic. The choice of pictures (photos, sketches, graphs or tables) must be clear, accurate and appropriate and this section must, in itself, answer the set “question”. Two or three hastily glued-on pictures from the Courier Mail are unlikely to meet these criteria. So, in this section you must carefully arrange your pictures. Your pictures will enrich your commentary by providing evidence of your ideas, adding to them, or even contrasting what you’ve found.

You can make the links to your commentary through captions, or you might wish to use visual techniques such as lines, arrows, “cluster bubbles”, or labels. Unless a detailed table or graph is being used to support your argument being made, you do not need to provide references for your photographs in your bibliography.

Note, that in setting out this section you will need to remember that the poster has to be folded flat for submission.
Poster Requirements

Posters are to be handed in during your tutorial in week 8.

The following requirements have been put into place to ensure equity across the task for all students undertaking it. Please adhere to them.

1.The poster is to be prepared on “poster-size” light easy-to-fold card (50 cm by 60cm) available from most newsagents or stationery shops.

2. The orientation of the poster can be either portrait or “landscape” (see ‘Poster Format’ guide).

3. Please ensure that your names, tutor’s name, unit code and title, and semester and year appear at the top of the poster along with a brief version of the topic title (see the guide in the ‘Poster Format’ section).

4. The poster is NOT to include 3D objects—only pictures and other visuals.

5. The poster is NOT to be clear laminated. (This will allow your tutor to “mark” it.)

6. Written work on your poster should, ideally, be word-processed. Given the space restrictions of the poster task and its various components, a minimum font size of 11 points is acceptable—although 12 is preferable. Again, because of space restrictions, multiple A4 sheets may be stapled behind each other.

7. As per the University policy, all presentation and practice must be inclusive (i.e. not discriminatory).

8. For submission purposes, the poster is to be folded flat (in half and in half again) and secured with a small “bulldog clip”. All documents and pictorials should be securely glued to the poster.

Definition of ‘Scholarly Reference’

The three annotated references must be scholarly (e.g., a scholarly book, a chapter in an edited book, a journal article, published conference proceedings) and, generally speaking, should be fairly recent.

The simplest definition is a book, chapter or journal article written by an academic expert and which includes references (footnotes, bibliography etc.) and is published by a reputable publisher. The publication can either appear in print or in electronic form. It does not include Wikipedia, magazine articles, newspaper articles, reports and general or government websites. See QUT Cite/QUT Write for more information. Please note, marks will be deducted if you have less than 5 scholarly references.

Suggestions for Preparing and Writing the Annotated Bibliography

The Annotated Bibliography should appear across the bottom third of your poster. It should be set out like an ordinary bibliography (i.e. alphabetical order by author’s last name) and, according to the assessment criteria, must contain at least five (5) scholarly references. The most important three (3) of these (and one (1) of the three must be from the unit readings or textbook) are to be annotated. In other words, under the most important three entries you need to write a couple of brief paragraphs in which you:

a)Identify the topic being discussed by the writer and the main point being made, and

b)Describe the specific contribution the work has made to your poster research.

The word limit of the annotations is 300 in total. This means you should write about 100 words for each of the three annotated entries.

Underneath the bibliography (and not counted as one of the 5 references), please include a heading “Interviews and Observations”, under which you’ll give the details of your field research (eg. Personal Interview with ____, 2008).

Consult QUT Cite/ QUT Write and the QUT Library’s web page on ‘Evaluating Information’ for information on APA referencing style. This is the style you will use for all Education units.
