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

Students

What is a poster?

A poster is a brief report of research or a topic in psychology that can be read by an audience 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.

Psychology Teachers at Community Colleges of the American Psychological Association and Psi Beta will award a $100 stipend and a certificate of recognition to the outstanding poster presentation.
