Improving Presentation & Dissemination of Your Research: How to Create a Visual Abstract

11:30 AM to 1:00 PM
Add to Calendar

NCRC Building 10, South Atrium

Research journals are increasingly using social media and "visual abstracts" to help disseminate publications. Early research suggests that articles with a "visual abstract" are read three times as often. Join us for a 90-minute hands-on workshop, led by Andrew M. Ibrahim M.D., M.Sc. (Creative Director at Annals of Surgery, RWJ Clinical Scholar at IHPI, and Clinical Lecturer in Surgery), that will teach you the core principles and skills needed to effectively communicate your research in a visual format.

The format of the interactive session will be:

1.       Introduction of the Visual Abstract (15 min)

2.       Create your Visual Abstract using templated guide (20 min)

3.       Review common Visual Abstract mistakes (20 min)

4.       Revise your Visual Abstract (20 min)

5.       Strategies to Disseminate Your Work (10 min)

Please bring a laptop and an abstract you would like to disseminate using social media. By the end of the session, we hope you will be able to make a visual abstract of your own!

 Lunch will be included.
