Poster Award Proposal Guidelines

STUDENTS: Psychology Teachers at Community Colleges and Psi Beta Outstanding Poster Award Proposal Guidelines


What is a poster?

A poster is a brief report of research or a topic in psychology that can be read by an audience and that moves around a room with many other posters. The author of the poster stands nearby, ready to answer questions or engage audience members in discussions about the work. The key idea to remember is that many audience members will spend
a maximum of five minutes reading an individual poster.

Successful poster presentations can convey important ideas quickly and easily. It is common for poster presenters to prepare a written paper to accompany the poster. Interested audience members can receive copies of these papers, which typically contain more information than the poster itself.


TEACHERS: The Society for the Teaching of Psychology Outstanding Poster Award

Registered participants are invited to submit proposals for poster presentations on any topic related to the teaching of psychology. Proposals should contain a summary description, including audiovisual needs, of no more than two double-spaced typed pages. Posters should be prepared using materials that enhance readability from a distance of three to four feet. Presenters are also asked to have copies of the complete presentation available for the participants at the session.
