HWS495: Senior Seminar: Presenting posters

Where do I start?

Answer these three questions:

  1. What is the most important/interesting/astounding finding from my research project?

  2. How can I visually share my research with conference attendees? Should I use charts, graphs, photos, images?

  3. What kind of information can I convey during my talk that will complement my poster?
