Preparing Poster Presentations 2018-03-20

Mar 20 2018

Tuesday, March 20: 5:15-6:15 pm, 307 Bessey Hall

A presentation poster requires a very different approach than a research report on the
same work. You need to be visually appealing, draw in your reader, and convey your
purpose and findings in a concise, direct manner. Dr. Tom Wolff, Faculty Emeritus from
the College of Engineering, has judged engineering project posters for many years. He will
speak about layout, communication, and people`s perceptions of typeface and graphic
design. Workshop participants will review examples of posters - both good and not-sogood
- and consider common pitfalls. Discussion of the function of a poster session as a
vehicle for sharing your work with visitors and judges will conclude the workshop.
