What is the process for creating a poster

What is the process for creating a poster?

  • 3 or 4 “panel” design with several ways to organize poster

  • Use PowerPoint or Corel Draw

    • Sketch out by hand first

    • Set slide size in Page Set up for 44” x 36”

    • Lay out whole poster using text boxes with 15%-20% (or whole page) “view”

    • Enlarge to 25%-50% to work on individual parts

    • Save frequently!

    • Check whole poster for balance before printing

    • Print in Arch.118 or CSE E211 for just $3.00!!


Present the poster

Present the Poster!

  • Yes, Virginia, there is still a “presentation”! But it’s…

    • Conversational in tone – “chatting” about your research where you are the expert

      YET…

    • Still a Dialogue – cannot hog the floor


Know your research well

Know your research well.

  • PRIME DIRECTIVE:

    • For each section of your work, be able to answer the wh-questions: who, what, when, why, where, how

KNOW THY RESEARCH


Practice the presentation

Practice the Presentation!

  • Prepare and Practice a 45-60 second response to the killer* question: “So, tell me about your research”. One sentence each:

    • Topic + significance of topic

    • Research Question

    • Methods

    • Results

    • Discussion

* the preeminent fishing question!


Topic significance and rq can usually be stated in a single sentence

Topic, Significance and RQ can usually be stated in a single sentence.

Given the rate of divorce [TOPIC] which is about 50% of all marriages [SIGNIFICANCE], I wanted to examine whether youngpeople believe that living together before marriage enhances the chance of marital success [RESEARCH QUESTION]. 


Method statement should include basics of design and population

Method statement should include basics of design and population

  • I designed a questionnaire which included some yes/no questions, some likert scale questions, and a semantic differential which I then distributed randomly to a college population [METHOD].


Results statement is a synthesis of what is most important

Results statement is a synthesis of what is most important.

  • Overall, participants revealed an interesting contrast between a fairly high acceptance of cohabitationas positive for many aspects of a relationship such as working out household duties and increasing intimacy while still having some doubts about the desirability of a mate who'd lived with former partners [RESULT].


Discussion statement is a summary of strongest implication or application to field

Discussion statement is a summary of strongest implication or application to field.

This suggests that among young unmarried people, beliefs about cohabitation are actually pretty similar to beliefs about marriage -- where men and women prefer to live with someone who is committed to the relationship but who hasn't had too many previous live-in relationships [DISCUSSION].


Plan for other open ended questions

Plan for other open-ended questions.

  • What is most important/significant about your research?
