Conference season is coming! Posters are a great opportunity to provide a snapshot of your proposed, in progress, or completed research. Additionally, posters are a great way to engage with others about your ideas and research. However, how do you get people to stop and chat about your poster/research? How do you even make a poster? How do you make a poster you can easily travel with for international conferences?

During this workshop we will discuss how to create a poster using Powerpoint. We will discuss tips for creating eye catching posters. The presenter will cover content, formatting, printing, and general tips and tricks.

Please bring your own laptop.

Due to the interactive nature of this workshop, it will not be available through adobe connect. Should you wish to receive a copy of the presentation and handouts please visit https://goo.gl/DB4rLY.

Presenting at conferences is a great way to meet people, share your work, get feedback, and enhance your CV.  Writing your conference proposal can be intimidating, and for this reason the EGSA-AÉDÉ has organized a workshop with the President of the Canadian Society for Studies in Education (CSSE), Professor Ng-A-Fook, with information on how to write your proposal for CSEE, tips to get accepted, and hands-on activities.  If you have a working proposal, feel free to bring one!  If not, we will provide samples.  

Refreshments will be provided thanks to support from the EGSA-AÉDÉ.

It is possible to attend this session in person or virtually over Adobe Connect.
