Poster sessions are an important vehicle for students to share their research with peers, faculty and other researchers but it can be difficult to learn how to convert a research question, methods and results into a poster format. This session, especially developed for undergraduate students, will introduce the basics of poster design, underscoring the component parts of research. With the help of subject librarians we will be able to focus in on the disciplinary differences in poster presentations to further refine participants’ understanding of scholarly research and presentation. Lunch will be provided.
This session represents one in a series of workshops being arranged collaboratively between the Office of the Vice Provost for Undergraduate Education and the Libraries to support the campus focus on undergraduate research, including an initiative to bring undergraduate research posters into the main library on a routine basis. The workshop will help to prepare students to present their research, in-progress or complete.
