If you’ve been asked to design and present a poster at a scientific or research event, this practical workshop will help you create something that hits the mark.

About this course

Posters can be a powerful way to present your research, ideas, and findings at conferences and meetings, but designing a poster that is visually interesting and presenting it in a way that holds the attention of your audience can be tricky. That’s where our poster design and presentation workshop comes in.

In this three-part workshop, we’ll make sure that you know what needs to be on your poster, introduce you to tried and tested design rules and new thinking in poster design, how to use modern technology in your poster, how to adapt a poster to your audience, and how to present and discuss your poster orally – all in a way that helps you engage and connect with your audience.
