A good poster is worth a thousand words...  but a bad poster is just a messy bit of paper.

When it’s time for you to present your research, how are you going to make the most of the opportunity? Aimed at second-year PhD students preparing for conferences, this session considers why we use posters to present our research, what makes a good poster, and some common mistakes. Through critiquing real examples and providing useful tips, this course helps you to present your research in style.

Outcomes

  • Understand the purpose of a research poster
  • Know what contributes to making a poster good
  • Feel more confident in presenting your work effectively
