11.6. Poster

posterPosters work well to show the connection between ideas. Here, layout is at the forefront. Posters are handed in as hard copies on poster board. 

A poster will have a clear title at the top centre or in the middle. 

Posters will be broken into sections with titles.  Some may be larger than others. You can use a combination of paragraphs, bulleted sections and captioned photos or graphics. 

You will not need to include an introduction or conclusion with a poster but the layout should make it clear where the viewer begins, develops and ends. 

Put your bibliography on to the back of the poster.
