Transcript and Presenter's Notes

Title: Posters


1
Posters
  • Summarize the study in a clear and interesting
    way.
  • Facilitate comprehension of the methodology and
    findings.
  • Minimize use of text and promote ease of viewing.

2
Design Options
  • Several ways to make a poster
  • Cut and Paste onto poster board (not as
    neat/clean, generally inexpensive)
  • Create a digital file (e.g., PowerPoint) of your
    poster, printed by a graphics shop (e.g.,
    Kinkos). Cost depends on use of color, size, and
    the printer.
  • -About 10 gets a 3x4 black and white poster
    from Kinkos.

3
Text Guidelines
  • Text should be large enough to be read from 4-5
    feet away.
  • Double-spacing not required dont do it.
  • Font size and type should be consistent for
    sections (headings, text boxes, etc).
  • Use the minimum amount of text needed to convey
    information.

4
Use of Color in Poster
  • Use color to assist presentation, not to
    distract/detract from research.
  • Use color for graphs, pictures, etc.
  • Use school colors for background, titles, etc.

5
Required Components
  • Title, author name, affiliation across top
    (centered)
  • Introduction with background information (brief),
    research question and hypothesis
  • Method (bullet points work well)
  • Results (graphs work well)
  • Discussion (brief)

6
Optional Components
  • University crest usually placed beside the
    authors name (some people do not recommend!)
  • Abstract (optional because its generally printed
    in the conference program and because it is a
    redundant use of other section information not
    recommended)

7
Optional Components (cont.)
  • References
  • -con take up space list in handout
  • -pro orient your study to other researchers and
    studies that may be well known
  • Acknowledgments (funding sources, research
    assistants, other help)

8
Order of Information
  • Order of information on poster generally follows
    similar format as order of a research report
    (abstract, intro, method, results, discussion,
    references, acknowledgements). This is not
    mandatory, but it follows a natural course of
    reading (the reason its the format we use!!).

9
Poster Dimensions?
  • Generally posters are 3 tall and 4 wide (most
    poster boards are 3 X 4 in dimension).
  • Check with convention/poster session guidelines.
    Ex Western Psychological Association allows
    posters to be 4(h)X8(w)! Thats a lot of poster.

10
Digital Poster Format
  • Can find outlines online that you can use to make
    your poster.
  • -Google poster outlines poster presentation
    outlines, etc. to find outlines online.
  • - (example on next slide).

Using Outline the Poster Template
  • You can easily add or take away categories, edit
    text, add pictures, etc.
  • Already formatted to 3 feet by 4 feet poster
    dimensions.
  • Will show examples of posters made using this
    format at end of presentation.

13
Tips
  • To choose a font size print out samples of font
    sizes and use one that you can read comfortably
    from 4-5 feet away.
  • Do not use color or decorative graphics
    excessively as it can detract from the ability to
    read your poster.
  • Try to avoid redundancy in your poster,
    especially if short on space.

14
Tips (cont.)
  • One source I like suggests that you should be
    able be able to read the poster text if you were
    to print out your poster on a regular piece of
    printing paper. If you cannot, then your text is
    too small.
