Improving Writing and Oral Communication for Engineering Students - The Conference paper and poster format experience

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contributionpeer-review

Abstract

The objective of this paper was to share our experience in developing writing and oral communication thought a new course that follows a conference paper and poster format. We believe that this format shows students in an active learning format how to communicate specific ideas according to specific standards like IEEE conference paper format, and also the poster experience gives them a real experience with industry to present their ideas. Our experience showed that this format gives the students the basis to keep on working by them self and send their projects to real conferences. We believe that this experience and the design of our course could be replicated to different Engineering Careers.
