ONLINE: From Paper to Poster

 

About this workshop

This online workshop aims to take mid-stream or close to completion research students as well as students who have completed their research, who are interested in generating posters for conferences and/or other presentations through the fundamentals required for a ‘good’ visual research poster. The workshop will engage students on what to include in both qualitative and quantitative research posters, focusing on 3 key visual components for producing an effective poster – coherence, clarity, and conciseness.
