Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Poster is one of printed advertising media that can be posted in public places. Nowadays, poster has become one of the media for learning and research. The aim of this study is to identify the suitability of poster presentation as an assessment for the PPPJ1143 Arabic lexicography course and to survey the effectiveness of this course through poster presentation. The content of the poster is based on the content of the Arabic lexicography course. Each student will choose an Arabic dictionary, design a poster to promote the dictionary and present it in an Arabic lexicography workshop held at the end of the semester. This study used a qualitative approach to analyse data descriptively. Two instruments were used to collect the data, namely the observation of the poster presentation process by 10 students who registered for the Arabic lexicography course in the second semester of the 2013/2014 session and 10 Arabic lexicography posters which were presented. The results showed that the students showed interest in the process of presentation, getting excited at designing the posters. A total of 60% or six students were able to understand the methods of lexicography and know how to use a dictionary clearly. The study also found that 80% of the posters met the content requirements in terms of teaching needs, requirement for an introduction to certain Arabic dictionary, aspects of design, colours, texts and image selection.
