Research Exhibition Guide: Template

Find everything you need to prepare and succeed.

A template has been provided as an example that shows all of the information that should be on your poster. You do not need to follow the template, but your poster should include: 

  • Title of the poster
  • Your name(s)
  • A description of the research process
  • References in a citation format (APA)

Contact the Library if you have any questions.

**Students presenting virtually**

You are required to use slides to present your research to the judges. The slides are the end-product; you will not be using a posterboard.

You will use VoiceThread to submit your digital presentation. This involves using slides created using Microsoft PowerPoint or Piktochart (or any other slide-based presentation tool) and narrating them. You can use the Research Template below if you would like to create a PowerPoint presentation. 

Digital presentations:

  • Should have no more than 12 slides
  • Be no more than 10 minutes long, once narrated in VoiceThread

Instructions on how to use VoiceThread can be found in MyBlackboard - VoiceThread Resources for Students.

Here's a preview of what the template looks like when applied to a poster.
