Do you want your research poster to stand out in the crowd? Join DesignLab and the Office of Professional Development for a workshop where you will learn to design a stunning and effective poster. We will explore how to structure your poster for your audience, identify common mistakes/errors, and provide you with tools to communicate your message effectively. Attendees will use DesignLab’s “CAT” framework to improve the Conceptual, Aesthetic, and Technical aspects of a poster or any visual medium. Light refreshments will be served.

As students we have all suffered through bad PowerPoint presentations. Whether you’re presenting your research, teaching, or creating a presentation for a job, utilizing principles of effective design can be the difference between an engaged audience and a sea of glazed-over eyes. In this workshop, we will look at the DesignLab’s “CAT” of designing presentations, that is the Conceptual, Aesthetic, and Technical aspects of your research/scholarly project. We will discuss how to structure your presentation for your audience, explore common mistakes/errors, and provide you with tools to communicate your desired message clearly and effectively. Lunch will be served, with gluten free and vegetarian options.
