Academic Poster Presentation – 22 November 2023

Skills course: Academic Poster Workshop

Date: 22 November 2023

Location: Online

Credits: 1 or 2 ECT

Max. participants: 10-12

Presenting an academic poster at a conference can be a daunting prospect, and sometimes a frustrating experience. How should you prepare for presenting your poster, and how do you get people to engage with you?

What makes an academic poster appealing, a good read, and attractive to an audience that passes a tenfold of posters in a short amount of time? How do you prepare for presenting your research to a small audience (often only one person), that can interrupt you at any time, and may ask you in-depth questions about your research?

During this workshop, participants will learn what the do’s and don’ts are of making a scientific poster, and how to present it.

**All participants are asked to submit a digital version of their poster draft BEFORE the workshop**

PLEASE NOTE: The focus is not what software to use for making posters (or how to use them!).
