Poster presentations to communicate scientific knowledge/understanding are a commonly used assessment tool. It can be a challenge for students (and staff!) to deliver clear information with minimal text on the poster. We have found that this format did not encourage imaginative project topics or posters. To enhance communication skills, imagination, and student engagement, we adapted an existing physiology research project and increased the emphasis on communication skills with the use of infographics. This paper describes how students may produce their own biomedical infographics and discusses the issues that educators may
need to consider when integrating infographic assessments into their teaching.
