Abstract

Abstract Content: Bologna recommendations shifting the focus of nurse education away from the acquirement of formal qualifications towards the development of nurse competencies calls for a change in pedagogical approach. Posterpresentations have been successfully used when developing nursing students’ intellectual, professional and academic competences as well as in the development of competencies relevant for nursing practice. Working with posters forces students to organize, evaluate and reflect upon information and develops their abilities to communicate health promotion knowledge for clinical practice. Moreover, posters help the students to put into perspective complex nursing practice,
problems and dilemmas so they become understandable for themselves and their audiences. Students evaluate posters
as a valuable and concrete and useable tool in the development of their roles as conveyors of health promotion
knowledge. The pedagogical advantages of poster based presentations have been evaluated in a Nordic educational
developmental project and have been found useful by both educators and students. Pedagogical posters support the
teacher’s role as a facilitator of learning, which is congruent with modern professional demands highlighting the necessity
of life-long learning. Further information concerning the findings from this educational innovation is available via the net.
