An ePoster is a digital presentation format required in some undergraduate and graduate classes, as well as a good format for presenting in many professional situations. ePosters apply the skill of remediation, the process of taking a text and translating it into a new medium. In this one-hour workshop, students will learn the basics of ePosters, including use of templates, examples of effective ePosters, and tips and tricks for strong presentations.
