· Please prepare a maximum of 7 PowerPoint slides.
· This includes one slide as the title slide that includes the title of the electronic poster and the authors’ names and affiliations.
· One slide with collective group references
· All e-Posters must be no longer than 4 minutes in total elapsed duration (including Title Slide) including transitions between slides.
· Don’t cram too much information into the electronic poster. Focus on a few major points – aim to convey to the audience 3 – 5 major points only, with all other text or images supporting these points.
· Consider using not only words but images and colour to enhance the appeal to the audience.
· Use a clear, readable font style that is at least 14- point in size so that the text is easily readable from 2 metres away.
· Avoid abbreviations, acronyms and jargon
· Please ensure graphical and visual clarity when presenting numerical or statistical data
· Please include transitions and animation to assist the impact and clarity of your slides and to allow automatic movement through your slide sequence.
· Ask yourself: Is the message clear? Do the important points stand out? Is there a balance between words and illustrations?
· The movement (pathway) of the eye through the poster ought to be natural (down columns and along rows). Size attracts attention. Arrows, hands, numbers and symbols can clarify sequence.
· Do not overload the poster. More material may mean less communication. Ask yourself: What do I want the viewer to remember?
· The poster should be understandable without oral explanation.
During Week 6, each group will be required to present their e-poster to the class. This presentation must take no longer than 15 minutes in total. This would include 10 minutes to present and 5 minutes for question time.
Students whose e-poster receives a high grade will be considered for public display during International Nurses Week (8-12 May 2017).
Lecturers reserve the right to adjust timings within and between slides in order to improve overall presentation if the e-poster is selected for public display. No changes to content or format of slide presentation will be made unless in consultation with the e-poster author
These will be assigned in Week 2 in tutorial class by your lecturer. You will be allocated to a group of no more than 5 students.
