Poster Presentation

What is Poster Presentation?

Poster presentation is a form of presentation that employs the use of visual components. It is often accompanied by an oral presentation, where students have to demonstrate their communication skills by delivering their knowledge of their internship/placement to their supervisors/tutors and other students.


Calvin College (2013) requires students to make a poster in their programs such as International Internship, Summer Internship, Summer Research, and etc. In order to ensure that all posters would be of excellent quality and professional presentation, Calvin College provides students with guidelines on poster design, as the following:

  • To create the poster, students may use PowerPoint, Fireworks, PhotoShop, Adobe Illustrator, and etc.
  • All posters should include some pictures of the work done in internship/placement, i.e., the job site, the co-workers, product samples, and etc. Students are reminded to ask for the company’s permission for using these pictures.
  • Generally, posters are presented in formal sections, i.e., abstract, introduction, methods, results, discussion, acknowledgements, goals, and objectives. (Not all of these categories are necessarily applicable.)
