Poster Presentations: Interacting Fluently with Your Audience

8:30-10:00 AM
Off Campus Location
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. With more virtual conferences, we also need to be ready for videoconference visitors. Finally, over the past year, poster presenters have also been asked to record brief video presentations open to conference attendees over several days or weeks. Each of these modes of communication presents unique challenges and opportunities. 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, whether in-person or virtual. If you have a poster presentation coming up, be ready to share a draft image 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.
