Do you need to know how to produce a poster for your research as part of a conference?  Not really sure how to set the poster size, create a banner heading, or size and position the University logo correctly, etc?  If so, then this course is definitely for you! 

As part of the course, you will learn how to produce an eye-catching elegantly formatted poster that will showcase your research to your peers.  Don't forget, posters are usually peer-reviewed, so it's important that you get it right the first time!
