This course is open to all staff but priority will be given to Research staff.
This is a workshop for participants who want to know more about presenting at a conference or have had difficulty getting conference abstracts accepted. The course will cover: what to include in an abstract, planning posters and ways to break the mould of standard posters.
Anticipated learning outcomes:
By the end of this session, you will have a fuller understanding of:
- identifying different readers and decision-makers that you need to consider when planning the abstract and poster
- determining the key message of your abstract and of your poster
- writing the abstract quickly, but also concisely
- creating imaginative posters that convey messages without being boring
- the preparation required to present your work professionally at a conference
- have a think about any conference you would like to attend, and gather any literature about the conference that you can. This includes getting hold of a previous year's set of abstracts if possible
- bring with you an idea of a poster that you would like to produce in the near future. If possible, please also bring a poster or two from your department - you can bring standard posters or ones that you either really like or dislike
