Making Effective Academic Posters: The #BetterPoster Approach
Presenter: Mike Morrison

Description: Scientific posters haven't changed in 30 years, which should be alarming to you (nothing in science should be stagnant). And evidence suggests they are incredibly ineffective. In this talk, you will learn the evidence-based design principles that science has discovered in the last 30 years (since the birth of the Internet) and how you can apply them to create fully-modern scientific posters that transmit your knowledge much more effectively to other scientists, and help you and them have more fun at poster sessions too. As a bonus, these same principles apply to presentations, reports --- anything you design for people to use.

Mike Morrison
Creator of the #betterposter movement
Mike Morrison is a former User Experience (UX) designer who quit his tech career to become a PhD student in Work Psychology. He says he’s trying to do two things in his career: 1) Bring User Experience design principles to science, to help disseminate knowledge faster and more efficiently 2) Understand the psychological differences between so-called ‘realists’ and ‘dreamers’. He recently released a video introducing a new way to design scientific research posters — which every field in science uses and which are notorious for their bad design. His video went viral, and now scientists across every field in science are trying out his new design — and having more fun sharing their research with other scientists. For virtual conferences, he also released another video on creating animated ‘mini-slideshows’ for sharing research online and on social media
