The poster is one of the most common ways of presenting and communicating research.  An effective poster summarizes your work and compels an audience to want to learn more.  In this OHSU Library workshop, instructor Robin Champieux will introduce visual and oral techniques for displaying and communicating research through hands-on activities.  Attend to learn about the process of preparing and presenting a successful scientific poster.

Oral presentations allow you to share your work with other researchers, but the medium can be intimidating, especially if you are new to public speaking.  This OHSU Library workshop will cover the basic structure for presenting research in an oral presentation, how to use slides and figures effectively, and public speaking tips, including how to respond effectively to an audience’s questions.  Like many research tasks, giving a good oral presentation is a skill you can learn. Attend this workshop to get started.
