Poster Design Workshop Resources

To support our participants in preparing for FIMULAW, the FIMULAW Organizing Committee hosted a poster design workshop in advance of FIMULAW 2019. Considering the growing popularity of poster presentation sessions, and the fact that 70% of our registrants identified basic principles of poster design as their priority in this workshop, it’s easy to see the role FIMULAW and other graduate research days play in supporting the professional development of graduate students.

70% of our registrants identified basic principles and best practices of design as their top priority in attending our poster workshop

Poster Design Workshop

Poster sessions seem to be increasingly popular across disciplines, but are certainly better established and more familiar in certain field. To support our graduate students in preparing for poster sessions, FIMULAW is proud to host a Poster Design Workshop in advance of FIMULAW 2019.

Join us Thurs, Feb 28 at noon in FNB 3010 for the FIMULAW Poster Design Workshop. This workshop will include:

  • An introduction to basic design principles
  • An overview of available software and aids for poster design
  • An opportunity to work on your poster design
  • A peer review exercise to get feedback and supports

Students and faculty across FIMS, Music, and Law are all welcome to attend. As this workshop is targeted to FIMULAW presenters, some content will reference the FIMULAW Graduate Interdisciplinary Research Day explicitly.

This workshop also a great opportunity for our presenters to ask any questions they have about our digital only poster presentation format!

Registration encouraged but not required.
