This is the final assessment and requirement for the professional project, which showcases your practical skills in presenting, highlights your personal development throughout the duration of the project, and well as enables you to defend ideas and recommendations made on your research project.

The poster should come as a standard academic-sized poster (i.e. standard sizes are 36” x 48”

or 42” x 56” in a landscape orientation). Place photos, texts, graphs, etc.as you would normally do in an academic poster (other artefacts may be included in the showcase as you see fit).

More information and guidelines on designing academic posters are found here: https://www.bolton.ac.uk/leaponline/Documents/LEAP-Printables/Poster-Presentations.pdf Your tutor will also provide you more information and guidelines in due course.
