1. Designing your posters

  • The useable area of the poster board is 140 cm in height and 90 cm in width. The recommended size of the physical poster is 140 cm in height and 90 cm in width, you can put up one large poster or decide to put up a number of smaller ones instead.

  • Make sure you have information about the presentation topic, name of the author(s) and affiliation on the poster.

  • Using columns is a good idea. Then the presentation format can be presented in a number of columns, beginning at the left-hand side of the board.

  • A brief introduction, clear explanation of the project/ teaching and learning strategy, and evaluation results (if available) should be clearly displayed on the poster.

  • Focus on a few main points using clear and sufficient graphics.

  • Consider using outlines or dot points for the poster presentation.

  • Use a clear and readable font size.

  • Please confirm the images that you provided are high enough in resolution and do not contain any copyright infringement materials.

  • If your project is funded by a university/ external grant (e.g. TDG, CDG), we suggest acknowledgement of the source of funding (if applicable) should be indicated on the poster.


2. Poster printing and set up

The accepted presenters can send their poster softcopy in PDF/JPEG format to for free printing (standard PVC poster).
