Research Posters - MS PowerPoint


Using the simplest, yet most powerful features of the newest PowerPoint application, learn how to design a research poster of any size. This seminar explores best layout practices in respect to themes, colours, fonts, figures/graphics and other useful tips.

Depending on the offering location, in-class instruction will be demonstrated in either MS PowerPoint 2010 or 2016. Differences between the two versions are mentioned when applicable to a given concept. Those working in a MAC environment can also benefit from the instruction though some keystrokes and procedures will be different.
