Course Detail

RD208 - Making a Poster Presentation

Audience: PhD students

Preparation: Please bring a research poster from your discipline to the session. It doesn’t need to be yours (provided you ask permission), it doesn’t need to be large (an A4 will do) and it doesn’t need to be good (anything to provide disciplinary context is fine).

This workshop will give you an insight into how to produce effective and engaging research posters. We will discuss the reasons for producing and presenting posters, the process of poster production – from initial hypothesis to telling the best story – and consider issues around poster planning, preparation, design and exhibition. By the end of the session, you will be able to identify what layout, colours, graphics and style might best support your research.

Keywords: poster presentation, engaging poster, poster design
