INTE 102 Fall 2016-2017 Project

Dear All,

Hope this finds you well.

Enclosed is a detailed description of your project.

Topic: A Prominent Educator

Choose one prominent local, regional, or international educator who has contributed to the development of
his /her field, university, or country. Prepare a poster in which you introduce that person, give a brief
summary about his/her life, education, and talk about his/her achievements.

Points to be tackled:

1. A brief personal introduction of the figure


2. Education
3. Current Occupation
4. Achievements
5. The importance of his/her achievement(s) in the field of expertise
6. The figures main quotes, pieces of advice, motto.

Format: Poster

Size: A2

Design:

1. People have to read it. Use text that is large enough for the audience to see/read.
Use big letters, suggested fonts are 36 or 48 for text and 72 or bigger for titles. As a rule people should
be able to read your poster from four feet away, and the title should be able to be read from at least ten
feet away.
2. Dont challenge peoples eyes. Select colours/backgrounds that are easy for the audience to see and
read.
If you choose to use a background, use a light colored background and dark letters for contrast. Avoid
dark backgrounds with light letters - very tiring to read. Dont make small pictures really big, they will
show the pixels instead of the image, and its distracting. Dont use funky font; theres a reason Times
New Roman and Arial fonts are used commonly; they are easy to read.
3. Setup is important. Balance the placement of text and graphics making it visually attractive. Use
white space creatively to define the flow of information. Column format makes poster easier to read in
a crowd. Your graphs should look professional and have labels.
4. Take time in your creation. This is a poster about something you have taking the time to study, take
the time to present your information professionally. Spell Check. Proofread. Get feedback before
printing. Take time to make a practice poster (maybe not even about the subject your presenting on),
this will help you get used to the tools of making better posters. If you take the time to make your
poster interesting, people might just get interested.
5. If youre presenting your poster don't read the poster to the audience. Instead, give the big picture
of what you did, explain why the subject is important, and use the graphics to illustrate and support
your key points.
