The HoloStim-3D seamlessly integrates with the HyperScope, an award-winning multiphoton imaging system, to create an industry-leading spatial light modulator SLM system for all-optical interrogation of neural networks with previously unachievable performance. Presenting a poster at a conference for the first time can be a daunting prospect. The small audience potentially just one person can interrupt, ask questions and grill you about your research without too much effort. However, it is a great way to gain feedback and interact with scientists, and it can be a real confidence boost when others are interested in your research.
Metrics details. The massification of higher education is often associated with poor student engagement, poor development of their critical thinking, inadequate feedback and poor student throughput. These factors necessitate the need to devise novel, innovative methods to teach, assess and provide feedback to learners to counter the restrictions imposed due to the large class learning environments. This study was conducted to ascertain the perceptions of 1st year medical students and staff at the Nelson Mandela School of Medicine regarding the value of poster presentations as a strategy to enhance learning, assessment and feedback.
A poster presentation is a way to communicate your research or your understanding of a topic in a short and concise format. It usually includes two elements - a poster and a brief usually no more than 2 minutes explanation. You will need to analyse and evaluate information, synthesise ideas and creatively demonstrate your understanding of a topic or the findings of your research.
A scientific research poster or conference poster is a tool that researchers use to present information in a structured way. It may be used instead of a talk and can often prove more effective, particularly in a situation where a researcher doesn't feel confident presenting in front of large audiences. One of the key advantages to using a scientific research poster is that it allows the researcher to interact with their audience in a one-on-one or small group setting. This gives the researcher plenty of opportunities to measure the reaction to their findings and listen to important feedback from their audience. That audience might consist of colleagues within the same field, fellow scientists in a different field, or members of the public who have no background in conducting or analyzing scientific research.
