| 2A | How do we instill experience into young engineers? The use of posters as a learning tool in engineering project management

On graduation, young engineers often enter a practice-oriented field like Project Management but they may struggle to relate the theoretical concepts learnt to real applications. Lecturers frequently seek to share real-life experiences by explaining concepts in lectures or by showing project videos. Similar to case studies, the use of posters facilitates the passing of experience to young engineers in a practical and effective manner. Use of posters requires students to actively summarise, collate, organise information in a logical and intuitive manner and present them to an audience. The experience develops several skills in the cognitive domain, affective domain and psychomotor domain mapped based on Bloom’s taxonomy (Krathworl, 2002) . Prior research into the educational value of posters have been done in other fields (Deonandran et al, 2013; Bargard et al, 2014) but not specifically in Project Management.
