Words of Wisdom

Good communication does not mean that you have to speak in perfectly formed sentences and paragraphs. It isn't about slickness. Simple and clear go a long way.

— John Kotter

The focus of this workshop is helping students plan and compose a research poster. We review the basic contents most posters include, with an emphasis on audience awareness. We cover some basic elements of design, and we discuss briefly how to properly prepare for a poster presentation. In classes where Power Point is available, students can participate by evaluating sample posters.
