Resource: Poster Template Example
Resource: Scientific Poster Design (Cornell U)
The purpose of this assignment is to create a poster that will present the visual and graphic presentation of the capstone project. Poster presentation should clearly articulate what you did, how you did it, why you did it, and what it contributes to your field and the larger field of human knowledge. This assignment is due in week seven and must be presented by the student.
Create your poster per guidance and approval from your capstone course faculty (template provided above). Follow the poster template as outlined and review the recommended resources in creating your poster.
What goals should you keep in mind to construct a poster?
- Clarity of content. Decide on a small number of key points that you want your viewers to take away from your presentation, and articulate those ideas clearly and concisely.
- Visual interest and accessibility. The viewers should notice and take interest in your poster so that they will pause to learn more about your project, and you will need the poster’s design to present your research in a way that is easy for those viewers to make easy sense of it.
From the capstone project, students will create an effective poster with the following information:
Title: Project Title
Authors: Your name, faculty advisor’s name
Purpose or Aims of the Study
Potential Implications to Practice
