Final Project

The Final Project is a visual representation of your selected country and your opportunity to demonstrate your understanding of the material presented in this course. Use the information collected in your  assignments to create a digital poster. You are free to use any software program (Prezi, Powerpoint, MS Publisher, Adobe, etc), but you must be able to save and submit the poster as a .jpg image. Design the presentation so that a viewer will be able to understand it as a ‘stand alone’ piece.

Posters will be graded according to:

1.) grammar and writing style,

2.) use of material presented in the course,

3.) content ,

4.) use of academic references, and

5.) design and aesthetics (Note that all images, charts and graphs must have references – ‘Google Images’ is not a proper reference.)

For information on how to create a digital poster, review the digital poster page on this website. In addition, the University of  Illinois provides an excellent online tutorial entitled, How to Create a Successful Research Poster.

Student posters will be included on the course website unless the student objects in writing before the final submission deadline. For examples of previous student work, visit the Student Poster Gallery.

Discussion: Create a bibliography of at least five scholarly sources that you will  use for your poster. The bibliography must be properly formatted in any citation style. See Research Resources module in Canvas for help. Critique at least two other bibliographies submitted by other students – you must provide constructive criticism using the criteria (scholarly and formatted) to receive credit.
