What is the Infographic Project

This project is intended to build upon your knowledge in prior course work to demonstrate your understanding of nursing care of the adult in the acute care setting, to demonstrate critical thinking and effective communication. The project also requires demonstration of professional practice skills.

You will create an infographic to inform a selected population based upon a topic you think would be valuable to the selected population. For example, if you wanted to inform elderly in an assisted living facility about safety and concerns related to polypharmacy, the infographic should be targeted to meet the needs of that population, and deliver a presentation.

There are multiple parts to this project:

  • Connect with your group to choose a content area and create a group contract for project planning (Required for successful group collaboration) (5 pts)
  • Determine a focus population (healthcare staff/providers, adult patients, or community/family)
  • Determine a topic/focus; share with faculty through your group contract for feedback
  • Find articles to share and collaborate on within your group; in the discussion forum; Share with instructor to share back with class using hypothesis(20 pts)
  • Design and infographic to effectively communicate your topic in a visually appealing way (50 pts)
  • Present your infographic and market it to your population! Present over Zoom in 3-5 min (50 pts)
  • Provide peer feedback (-10 points if not complete)

Background on Infographics

Tip: This is a resource. It provides some background about how visual representations are useful in providing information and why they are appealing to the human eye. Consider how images, colors, and graphics inform the viewer and capture attention as one of the goals is related to communicating clearly to the focus population.

Grading Rubric

The grading rubric is based on the three parts of the assignment (See Syllabus or Canvas for Rubric):

Part I: Group Contract and Resources (25 points)

Points are based upon completion of the group contract as instructed and collaboration to provide feedback as you review the resources you find to share with the class in Hypothesis

Part II: Infographic Visual Representation

This is where you get to have some fun and be creative, while thinking intentionally about the population you are designing for. Be sure to have your final resources submitted on a separate document, if not included in the final design.

Part III: Infographic Presentations

At the end of the semester you will present to your peers. But you only have 3-5 minutes to "sell" your information to your audience to make sure they retain your main points. Have fun, get creative, and think about what makes presentations memorable for information to stick with you!

Hypothesis for Annotations

Hypothesis is a tool that can be used to add comments, thoughts, and offer a different approach to evaluating, reading, or reviewing resources. Your instructor will obtain your selected resource or article through the submission. As a class you will have access to all of the infographic groups "select" scholarly resource to explore for your own knowledge and interests. It will be fun to explore the resources each group finds, and may be beneficial to looking at current evidence through each system we explore in the semester weeks ahead!

Growth Mindset

As we think about this new assignment, keep in mind the growth mindset we talked about in class. I look forward to the amazing and creative presentations you come up with.
