A Recipe for Successful Poster Sessions
Hazard, Brenda L.
International Journal of Listening, v21 n2 p162-165 2007
Poster sessions are frequently on the menu at professional conferences and meetings. They offer an opportunity to share an idea, a solution, an experiment (successful or failed), or a discovery. Poster sessions tell a short visual story and include a frequently repeated, brief presentation (5-10 minutes), accompanying materials, and informal question and answer sessions during a designated time period. Sessions vary from highly structured with strictly defined formats assigned by a professional body to more free-form, improvisational, come-on-down invitations. In either extreme, poster sessions are an effective way to take an active role in professional meetings and to connect with colleagues with similar interests. In this article, the author provides tips on having a successful poster session.
