Multimodal and Alternative Assignments

Some academic disciplines require students to create a poster. An academic poster is a graphic and textual way to present information. An effective poster balances information and presentation.

Poster presentations

Poster presentations follow a specific format.

UAB has some Research Poster Templates you can use to represent your work at UAB.

You can find more information on creating posters at the Office of Undergraduate Research webpage and this guide on poster presentations.

Indiana University lists additional resources for creating research posters that include design help, poster examples, and tutorials.

Poster Software

Posters can be created in Powerpoint and some Adobe products. If you don't have either of those, you can use OpenOffice's Impress.
