In many fields, the poster presentation is a key form of scholarly communication. This workshop provides an opportunity for graduate students to polish a draft poster that they intend to present at a conference.
You must bring a draft poster or a poster you have previously presented in .ppt or similar format.* If you own a laptop computer, please bring it to the workshop if possible.
Participate in this workshop and you will:
- Analyze posters and learn what features can make a poster effective
- Evaluate posters prepared by other students and gain valuable constructive criticism from them on your own work-in-progress (or previously presented poster)
- Improve the poster you are currently developing (or have previously presented) and learn to apply those lessons to future posters
Dr. Christopher Corkery, a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Chemistry, will lead the workshop.
The workshop will be held on McGill's downtown campus on Wednesday, February 25, from 1 to 3 pm. Registrants will receive the workshop location in a confirmation email.
* If you do not have a poster in draft form, or a poster that you have previously presented, this workshop will be of little value to you. Graphos typically offers a companion workshop in the fall semester for students who have not yet begun work on a poster.
