Poster design and presenting

Simone Apel 

Academic poster presentations are excellent visual and verbal communication tools for students to describe their research to others. In this session we will consider what a poster should convey, we will look at visual design and written content and, using tips from poster competition judges, the session will also feature best practice in the verbal presentation of your poster at a competition. We will also look at performance issues and how to tackle nervousness. 

After the workshop you will:-

  • Understand the aim & purpose of poster presentations
  • Describe what makes a great poster from a judges perspective
  • Understand best practice in design to ensure your poster is attractive
  • Be able to write and organise your poster text
  • Identify the verbal presentation skills needed
  • Describe some methods for handling nervousness

Please note that this is not an IT training session, though a handout will be given on producing your poster in Powerpoint. A variety of different software is, however, available on the web for poster production.



This workshop is open to any student currently registered on a research degree programme at the University of Northampton. Further information is available from Simone Apel (; 01604 893418).
