6.45am some really useful comments on my draft paper (see link above)

Thanks #altc… that was fun!

Final poster

I am including this here, because otherwise the process would seem somewhat incomplete. I have used printers (Redcliffe Imaging Limited) I found via Google, who also offer a 30% discount to education users and also to NHS staff. They were incredibly efficient, returning my poster in a day. It has been printed on material so that I can fold it easily and carry it in any bag Рnot a cheap option but hopefully a sensible onefinal.

 

 

3rd (final?) draft of poster for conference

 

Following some more great feedback: “I wonder if the word ‚ÄėOnline‚Äô shouldn‚Äôt appear boldly? ….¬†‚Äėfuze‚Äô is occupying a lot of space….¬†Outcomes could be a little bolder¬†..¬†the ‚Äúquiet is okay‚ÄĚ point would be an interesting point to pull out in a quote to catch attention.”

I have added the word “online” in a couple of places hoping that would be enough to make a difference.

What do you think?

Draft two poster for conference

Even more great feedback and now there is a third draft to look at. I think this might be the final one.

Following some great feedback, I have produced the following 2nd draft. The comments I got included:

“…leave out the reference to the HEA PI, unless it suits the purpose of the other conference. The poster should represent your research and I don‚Äôt think you need anything which either supports the idea that it is practitioner research or is of a high quality. That should come through the poster…”

“I would put up front and in very big text a summary of the topic and findings (summary instead of introduction). Then around it you put further details on different aspects…”¬†among other pertinent comments. ¬†Thank you to all my generous¬†critical readers.

First draft of poster for conference

Please see draft two which is replacing this version.

 

Enhancing Student Learning Through Innovative Scholarship Conference – Durham 16/17 July

This will be A0 size  (but 84 cm x 84 cm square) and printed on canvas.

This is my first draft, produced, unusually, in a square format to fit A0 poster stand because I would like to re-use it at another conference Рwho might use landscape rather than portrait displays.

I would welcome your critique.

The objective for this poster is to have something to talk about.
