Domain: D2 Communication and dissemination
This workshop is for students who have little or no experience of producing and presenting academic posters and who need to prepare one for display at a future event, either within their School or at an international conference.
The aim of the workshop is to help you to use posters effectively, to pitch them at the right level for your audience and to make your poster stand out from the rest!
Topics covered include:
* reasons for producing and presenting posters
* managing the stages of the process – from formulating your hypothesis to defending the poster
* issues to consider when producing your poster – the balance between simplicity, content/information, design, materials, time and cost
* defending your poster at the meeting/conference
The workshop will be a mixture of mini-talks, discussion and interactive group work. In the afternoon you will get a chance to build a poster from first principles.
