IMPRS-LS Workshop

 

Date: Wednesday 25th - Thursday 26th October 2017

Trainer: Ruth Willmott

Description: Knowing how to design a well-structured, visually attractive poster is a must for every researcher. However, due to insufficient know-how and inexperience, you may fail to get your message across and also not present your poster optimally. To overcome these problems, the Designing and Presenting Posters Workshop focuses on the key dos and don’ts of strong poster design using your own poster as material. In addition, you will be coached on how to effectively make your key points and convey your message as well as on how to make the best impression on interested parties. This workshop will therefore enable you not only to design and present a poster competently but also to represent yourself and your Institute more professionally.
The Designing and Presenting Posters Workshop is ideal for early stage research scientists with no or little poster designing and presenting experience.

How to get started and keep going as well as what goes where and in which tense will be the starting point of this workshop. We will also review key scientific sentence structures as well as strategies to keep your text concise and precise. Issues such as how to create flow and generate the correct level of emphasis will also be discussed.
