Poster Day

In addition to completing your 100-hour practicum placement, you will also present your experience at our annual Poster Day. Each year, Practicum students present their academic posters before a diverse range of community partners, university faculty and staff, and fellow students. This event is used to summarize your findings, observations and field experiences. 

“The poster experience challenges students to engage the workplace, say something new and back up their opinions in everyday language. We’ve had hundreds of success stories over the years. Students learn how to develop their ‘elevator pitch’, which demonstrates their awareness of the issues, prepares them for interviews and shows prospective employing organizations that they are ready to lead.”
