Poster Design Workshops

The Office of Undergraduate Research (OUR) offers workshops for UT undergraduates to support the creation and presentation of a research poster. Undergraduate students must register in advance for these workshops. OUR is not able to support graduate students at this time.

Workshops emphasize poster design principles, appropriate sections for a research poster, presenting your poster, understanding your audience, and evaluating a poster. This workshop, or its equivalent in your program, is required for all students presenting at the Longhorn Research Poster Session during Research Week.

Fall 2020 Workshop

Thursday Oct. 22, 11 a.m. – 12 p.m.

Sign up for the workshop.

Research posters are a key method of communicating research in the sciences, so we invite you to learn about creating and presenting research posters at our poster design workshop. We’ll discuss the organization and goals of poster sessions, design principles that will help you present key information on a poster in a visually appealing way, and strategies for discussing your work with poster session attendees. All students will be given access to a poster design template via Canvas.

What if I can’t attend a poster workshop? Please email us or call 512-471-7152 to set up an individual appointment, or see information below to join the OUR Poster Canvas page.


Students who would like access the workshop presentation and poster templates can enroll in the OUR Poster Canvas page.
