Words of Wisdom

The best and most telling speech is not the actual impromptu one, but the counterfeit of it ... that speech is most worth listening to which has been carefully prepared in private and tried on a plaster cast, or an empty chair, or any other appreciative object that will keep quiet, until the speaker has got his matter and his delivery limbered up so that they will seem impromptu to an audience.

— Mark Twain

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.
