This training session is for researchers who have been accepted to present a poster at LINK.
Posters are widely used in academic conferences and other settings and provide an excellent means to present your research in a concise, accessible and interesting manner. This course is for you if you wish to learn how best to use posters to communicate with your audience. This course does not cover IT skills for creating a poster. To further develop your poster design skills you may want to attend Creating a poster in PowerPoint.
Latecomer policy Researchers should plan to arrive prior to the advertised course start time. Except for exceptional reasons, there will be no admittance to a Researcher Academy or Faculty Training Programme (FTP) course 15 minutes after the advertised course start time.
Importance of booking commitment When booking on to a Researcher Academy short course you are entering into a commitment to attend. If you find that you are no longer available to attend you MUST cancel your place (on the system if more than three days before the course) or if at short notice by emailing email@example.com. This will ensure that your place can be offered to another researcher on the waiting list. Failure to cancel a place results in other researchers missing out on places through the waiting list process.
It is unacceptable for researchers to just not attend when booked onto a course. Researcher Academy maintains records of those who repeatedly do not attend courses they have booked. This may affect future eligibility to book onto further Researcher Academy courses and will affect considerations for Researcher Academy funded opportunities.
