Poster presentations at conferences are effective methods of communicating research findings.
Virtual Poster Conference
Poster presentations at conferences are effective methods of communicating research findings. The discussion of the research being presented is a key element in poster conferences. During professional conferences, poster presenters speak with other psychology professionals providing insights into the information offered within the poster as well as explaining key elements of the research findings. See the PSY699 Poster submission guidelines (Links to an external site.) for templates and guidelines to aid in the creation of your poster.
For this week’s discussion, you will be submitting a link to your Folio account where your colleagues will find your poster presentation along with a brief detailed explanation of the materials included in it. Poster presentations are typically informal affairs with limited time for presenters to provide extra information.
In keeping with this, your explanations of the materials will be limited to specific parameters.
To explain the research presented in your poster, you will be creating a 3- to 5-minute screencast video.
You may use any screencast software to create this video. (For further assistance with specific free-use screencast software please see the Quick-Start Guide for Screencast-O-Matic (Links to an external site.)) Within the screencast video, you will create a voice over that will point out unusual, unique, and important aspects of the research presented in the poster.
Be certain to visually indicate the specific sections or headers where the elements are located to guide your viewers through the materials. The link to the screencast will be attached to the poster page within your Folio project so that your colleagues may interact with your insights into the materials.
1. All information on the poster must be compiled into one PowerPoint slide in Landscape Orientation. See the template options here: Template 1, Template 2, and Template 3.
2. The full title of the poster and the name of the author should be shown at the top of the slide.
3. Enter content for the poster within the appropriate sections of your template and add heading names as necessary.
4. Be sure to remove any unused sections of the template.
5. Any photographs, graphs, or other images must belong to the author or be his/her original creation and should be large enough to see relevant detail.
1. Be clear and concise with the poster design and content. Overcrowding a poster makes it difficultto read.
2. When creating the PowerPoint electronic poster, the preferred font is a 20-point font size.
Use aminimum 16-point font size for ease of reading.
3. If possible, do not reformat the template, as the requirements for visibility are already built intothe models
