Poster Workshop

Making and Printing Research Posters: A Workshop

"How do I design, create, and print a poster for a poster session?"

Some DU students, especially in the sciences, receive training and support for creating posters for conference sessions. However, many DU students, especially in the humanities and social sciences, have little or no experience or help available. We've created a workshop designed to show all students, in all subjects, how to present their work in a poster session. Students presenting at the Undergraduate Research Symposium or the COMPosium should find the workshop especially useful and timely.

Topics to include:

What is a research poster?
Foregrounding your argument
Distilling complex findings into a concise visual and textual display
Basic software advice
Assembling your poster with attention to size, color, and readability
Software tips
Editing and revising your poster
Printing and displaying
