Session: This course will illustrate how presenting a poster can be a valuable means of building your academic profile.  

In the first part of the workshop you will be given the opportunity to critique a number of posters, which we will provide. The purpose of this exercise is to show what works and what does not work with respect to designing an academic poster (e.g. layout, style, colour).  If you have a poster of your own (either a paper copy or one prepared on a USB stick) you are welcome to bring that along for comments/feedback from your peers (comments will only be given in relation to the design, and not the content).  

The second part of the workshop will provide a step-by-step introduction to producing a poster, using PowerPoint.  

You are free to attend both parts of the workshop or, if you feel you do not need the PowerPoint instruction, you may leave after the first part.

"Excellent Seminar. Taught me new things about powerpoint even though I've been using it for years."
