Do you have an example of an innovative community engagement project that you would like o prepare a poster for and be part of our Poster Party.
The poster session will be taking place between 1pm and 1.45pm and then again from 4pm to 4.30pm. You will need to be available between those times to host your poster and meet other attendees. Posters can be hosted by more than one person, and we encourage poster hosts to involve their collaborators in developing and hosting the poster. Academic staff, professional staff and students are welcome to participate. Refreshments will be served during both of the poster sessions and it will be a great opportunity share your ideas in a relaxing but lively environment. You will be expected to produce an A1 size poster, portrait orientation.
We are particularly interested in posters that speak to the themes of the day;
- Service or contribution – students, staff and alumni
- Engaged teaching
- Engaged research
- Transformative partnerships
- Measuring outcomes and/or impact
To register your poster email firstname.lastname@example.org with your contact details and the name of your project.
