The NIDA International Program held a series of webinars this spring to help participants of the 16th NIDA International Forum prepare their poster and oral presentations.

  • Powerful Poster Presentations used draft posters from 2011 Forum participants to demonstrate how a well-designed scientific poster can help researchers communicate effectively with colleagues by selecting information that attracts viewers to the poster, organizing the contents for maximum clarity, using text and illustrations to enhance the poster, and making professional connections at the poster session.
  • Scientifically Speaking: How To Prepare an Effective Presentation helped oral presenters describe complex concepts and data concisely, structure the presentation for maximum clarity, use images effectively, prepare titles that attract attention, and begin and end the presentation smoothly.

The webinars were recorded and are available on the Professional Development Webinars section of the NIDA International Program Web site.
