Location: Online (via Zoom)

Target audience: Doctoral researchers at all stages and from all disciplines. Research staff are also welcome to book a place to attend this workshop.

Workshop description:

How can you display your research in an engaging visual format using accurate and clear visual representations? How should you present and discuss it during a poster session at an event? How can you use your poster to engage senior colleagues and expand your network?

Communicating your research on a poster is an excellent way to engage your peers, attract attention to your work and network with senior colleagues. Effective poster presentations require the researcher to consider several aspects such as design, data visualisation, image quality, key messages, concise written communication, public speaking and networking; it is therefore important to start planning your poster well in advance of the event.

This workshop is designed to introduce participants to effective poster design and networking strategy. It will also touch on some online tools and technologies that may be helpful for poster presentations. Short group exercises, case studies and the facilitator's personal experience will be included to illustrate key points.

Technical details: This workshop will include a mixture of presentation, individual exercises and discussions in small breakout groups. Participants are free to choose if they want to keep their camera on.
