An academic poster is an advertisement of your research and aims to attract and inform your audience. It's key to make it visually attractive and to catch the viewer's eye.
The language policy advisors provide tips, tricks and examples on the dedicated website Taaladvies. Below, you can find a translation of the Taaladvies tip. However, do take a look at the examples in the Dutch version.
What should your poster include?
- Introduction of the research question: what are the objectives of your research?
- Background: why is your question relevant?
- Methods: how did you approach the question?
- Results: what are the results of your research?
- Conclusion: what is your conclusion, what do the results imply?
How do you present your information?
Think about the take-away message. Then ensure that the information is
- in a logical order,
- interesting with respect to the content,
- visually attractive.
What is the goal of your poster?
- To connect with peers
- To stimulate discussion and conversation
- Use an existing template if you're lacking experience or inspiration. You can also use the official UGent templates.
