& Presentations

What is a poster session?

A poster session offers an alternative to the lecture-style presentation or formal workshop as a means of sharing your topic or technique with a walk-up audience that can be engaged at a very personal level. It should offer new and specific information, as opposed being simply an information table.

A poster session can take the form of a poster printed through a print shop; a hand-pasted compilation or collage on poster board or tri-fold; or an electronic presentation, such as a web site or PowerPoint presentation. Providing visual aids and/or handouts is recommended.

What outcomes will participating in poster sessions have?

Posters will be presented during Highline’s Opening Week this fall. Presenters will stay with their exhibits and be available to share and answer questions.

In addition to the benefit your poster session will bring to Highline, you can take your presentation on the road and present it at academic/professional conferences you attend.
