WEBINAR - Posters: designing, presenting and networking
21 May 2020 10:00 until 13:00
Speaker: Dr Joanna Young
Target audience: Doctoral researchers at all stages and from all disciplines. Research staff are also welcome to book a place to attend this workshop.
How can you display your research in an engaging visual format using accurate and clear visual representations? How should you present and discuss it during a poster session at an event? How can you use your poster to engage senior colleagues and expand your network?
Communicating your research on a poster is an excellent way to engage your peers, attract attention to your work and network with senior colleagues. Effective poster presentations require the researcher to consider several aspects such as design, data visualisation, image quality, key messages, concise written communication, public speaking and networking; it is therefore important to start planning your poster well in advance of the event.
This workshop is designed to introduce participants to effective poster design and networking strategy. It will also touch on some online tools and technologies that may be helpful for poster presentations. Short group exercises, case studies and the facilitator's personal experience will be included to illustrate key points.
- "Having a go at presenting our own poster was useful to condense your thoughts but also to build confidence"
- "Finding out what happens at poster sessions and how they work made me think more about visual aspects of my research."
- "Helpful to know about which software to use, which fonts to use and ideas for how to make the poster look good."
- "Trainer was very good and knowledgeable"
