Collaborative Team Poster Proposal

Use GoogleDocs to create a Team Poster Proposal. Assign/share the document with student teams to organize their research, provide input on the research process, feedback and peer review. 

If you are not familiar with sharing documents using Google, take a moment to watch the Google Doc: Creating and Sharing a Document for Collaborative Editing Video from Teaching, Learning and Technology on YouTube.

Collaborative Group Research Poster Design

  • You can use Google Presentations to work collaboratively on a single poster.  This allows everyone in the group to contribute to the poster from any computer with an Internet connection.  
  • If you are creating your poster from "scratch," make sure to size it to the appropriate size.  From the top left of the screen click File > Page Setup > Custom.
  • You can also use a Google Template, change your poster theme, or import your favorite theme from PowerPoint, Keynote, or another program. Click on "Theme" on the top middle of the screen and follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Once you have created your working research poster document, you can share it with your fellow poster creators.  Click the blue "Share" button from the top right of the screen and add their email addresses.

Shared Group Poster Activity

How to Use this Activity in a Group, Class or Workshop

Before class: 

  1. Login to your CofC Google Apps Account and click on this  Group Poster Activity hyperlink.
  2. From the "File" menu > make a copy... (this will copy the document into your "Shared with Me" folder in your Google Drive account.
  3. When not in use, make sure that the "Share" settings are set for "Anyone who has the link can view." 
  4. For the activity change this setting to "Any with the link can edit." This will simplify the login process for students during the activity, and you will save class time by not having to add each student to the document for the exercise).

After Class: 

  1. Reset the document "Share" settings to "Anyone who has the link can view." 
  2. From the "File" menu > "See revision history" click on the revision entry will revert the document to its original version (that can be used for future sessions).
