Detailed instructions for Applied Experience assignments are available in Blackboard.
The purpose of the Synthesizing Assignment (SA) is to connect your individual experience with the broader world of public health. Several components make up a completed Synthesizing Assignment:
- The format for your SA is an academic poster – this can be used for any AE site, whether research or practice-oriented.
- You will also record a spoken narrative of your poster in Voicethread.
- You will share your poster with others – details about opportunities to do this and how to submit for free printing will be disseminated as they become available. Possibilities include the Public Health Student Forum’s Fall Event, or the JHU DREAMS Day in spring.
The Johns Hopkins Center for Educational Resources provides excellent videos and handouts on effective poster design.
