Skills course: Academic Poster Presentation
Date: 24 September 2021
Credits: 1 or 2 ECT
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, attendees will learn what the do’s and don’ts are of making a scientific poster, and how to present it.
N.B. The focus will not be on what software to use and how to use it. We will provide a list of websites to visit, which provide information about the practical aspect of making a poster.
