Communicate your work with confidence!
This workshop is for librarians who are presenting the results of their research or assisting researchers and clinicians in health and medical disciplines.
We will explore how to conceptualise, design and present a poster or infographic to communicate the key information clearly, succinctly and in ways that draw the attention and interest of your intended audience. We will also cover best practice in presenting statistical information, using the latest data-visualisation techniques, guided by the following questionsHow do people process information?
- How do people process information?
- What are the best ways to convey rich and complex data economically?
- How do we avoid confusing clutter and information overload?
- How can we make our presentations interesting and compelling so they leave a lasting impression?
We will explore instructive examples, tips and hacks to improve the quality of your presentation, using tools available on most computers and devices.
