Research Communications Academy: Communicating Visually: Making Your Posters a

Monday, February 15, 2021 - 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.


Almost anyone who’s wandered the poster hall at an academic conference or squinted at complex figures in a presentation has thought it: There has to be a better way. From overly long titles, tiny text and swarms of logos to bad font choices, color schemes and blurry images – it’s easy to leave viewers confused by your poster’s message. In this session, Zen Faulkes, who’s written the Better Posters blog for more than a decade and whose Better Posters book will be released Jan. 25, will share tips on how to create and deliver conference posters that deliver maximum impact for your research. Faulkes, a biologist and instructor at McMaster University, will also review and workshop finished or in-progress posters submitted by Research Communications Academy participants. Register here.
