This workshop will prepare undergraduate students who are presenting their poster in the 15th Annual Randy Kobes Undergraduate Poster Symposium. Or, address some of your questions if you're still thinking about entering! The following specifics will be discussed: docs/symposium_poster_workshop_agenda.pdf

  • Symposium Format
  • How to present your poster via Zoom
  • Tips from an experienced Judge as to what they’re looking for (Guest: Tricia Meaud, NSERC)
  • Important Dates/Deadlines

Tricia Meaud from NSERC is one of our experienced judges who will take the time to present what they're looking for in a poster and presentation. She will provide examples of what judges enjoy and what could have been improved from past presenters. A member of the organizing committee will also summarize judges’ comments from previous years and go over tips for effective communication.

Don’t miss out on this opportunity to fine-tune your presentation skills! All are welcome.
