Course Details and Schedule

This three hour session has two parts. The first part is a discussion and talk about poster design. This emphasises how the design process should be approached in PowerPoint, but there is much that is also applicable in other tools. The second part is a workshop where you are encouraged to bring along your own resources and start to create your own poster in PowerPoint 2013. If you are not yet ready to do this, there will be resources available that you can use to create a practice poster.
