Words of Wisdom

You expect far too much of a first sentence. Think of it as analogous to a good country breakfast: what we want is something simple, but nourishing to the imagination. Hold the philosophy, hold the adjectives, just give us a plain subject and verb and perhaps a wholesome, nonfattening adverb or two.

— Larry McMurtry

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.
