Course learning outcomes:

The objectives of this course are to learn how to create a scientific poster that:

Draws attention
Controls eye movement across the poster
Conveys the information
Evokes emotions

The recommended time of completion is at the beginning of the doctoral training.The course is organised once every term.

This is a theoretical and practical workshop where the participants are guided through the process of making a poster that is attractive but still credible. It is a visuals-only workshop meaning that effective writing and presenting a poster are not covered by the course.

During the feedback session of the course you will give and get feedback on your poster. The focus is on the structure and how the visuals could be placed to communicate your message in the best possible way. You are to bring two printed A3 (color) versions of your poster to the feedback session (the poster does not have to be finished).

The workshop is intended for anyone who is interested in creating a poster that outshine the neighboring posters, a poster that will be read and draw attention. The workshop is also suitable for anyone that would like to learn how to draw images using professional illustration software.

Practical workshop with hands-on sessions and feedback.
