Keep it short, sharp and to the point: Working with text
The ability to present your research in a succinct, imaginative and accessible way is a vital skill for any researcher these days. Both within Academia and in the outside world if you can captivate an audience in a matter of minutes, half the battle is won. The ePoster is one such challenge.
This workshop will look at maximising the impact of your text in the very limited space that an ePoster allows. Bring pen and paper or laptop/smart phone for writing exercise purposes.
Date: Tuesday, 7 August 2018 and Monday, 13 August 2018.
