Poster Presentations: Interacting Fluently with Your Audience

ELI Winter 2020 Graduate Workshop Series
Thursday, January 23, 2020
6:00-8:00 PM
G127 Angell Hall Map
We often frame poster presentations at academic conferences and symposia as “easier” and less high-stakes than presenting a paper or participating in a panel, but poster presentations are about 10% presenting and 90% interacting with one’s “audience” of a few people crowded around the poster in a busy, noisy conference space. This type of Q & A can feel daunting, but can also be fun and interesting to prepare for with other graduate students. In this workshop, we will not be working on poster design: instead, we’ll work on strategies for fluent communication with visitors to your poster.

If you have a poster presentation coming up, bring a sketch or draft of your poster so that you can practice taking questions from others at the workshop. Otherwise, come ready to practice formulating and responding to typical question types in poster presentations.
