The course is taught entirely online and includes assigned readings and videos, written assignments, and online interactions with other students. There is no assigned text. Materials will be available through Blackboard. Poster Presentation: Each student will create a visually informative poster and video presentation that will support the online poster session. Students will pose and answer questions during the poster session, which will extend over two days to allow for asynchronous participation. Manuscript Submission: Students will select an appropriate journal for the publication of their manuscript, write the manuscript in accordance with that journal’s instructions to authors, and submit the final manuscript to the journal, and to the Faculty Committee.

Students must consult with their faculty mentors and other co-authors throughout the course. Successful students of this 2‐credit course will create and present a scholarly poster and write a manuscript which will be submitted for publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
