Academic research can be shared with an audience in a number of ways: journals, books, presentations...
One of the ways is via an academic poster: a large paper poster that summarises the research and its findings, a bit like an illustrated and extended journal abstract.
These posters are typically displayed at a conference or exhibition, often in the main circulation space, or as part of a poster presentation session. Typically you will be stood with your poster, fielding questions and potentially talking through its contents.
Informative posters are an increasingly popular way to share information and research work at conferences and exhibitions, but what’s the best applications to use? Word? Publisher? Surprisingly good results can be obtained using PowerPoint which, although intended for presentations, shares many features with publishing applications. In this session we explain and demonstrate how to configure PowerPoint to enhance the quality of your images and text.
