Workshop Details

Designing Effective Poster Presentations

Poster presentations are integral tools facilitating communication of ideas. Posters are NOT pasting a scholarly article on foam-core and discussing it. Effective poster presentations represent a "...well-designed, eye-catching, and engaging..." display of information in a brief format in classrooms, conferences, symposia and workshops.

This workshop provides ideas and resources for the design of effective poster presentations. It includes resources from journal articles, books, and Internet sites that focus on the planning, design, construction, and presentation of a poster. We will "design" a poster as a single PowerPoint slide.

This workshop is available for in-class presentation for student poster projects.
