Poster presentations represent an interactive and visual way of showcasing research at conferences. Generally less formal than traditional presentations, they allow for opportunities to engage with other conference attendees in a low-pressure, feedback-conducive environment. In this course we will examine effective examples of conference posters. Participants will then learn how to create and present a poster based on their own research.
