In this workshop, students will be introduced to the design and creation of visual summaries of the information contained within an abstract. These visual abstracts are a powerful means to disseminate research on social media, boosting an article’s exposure and facilitating communication between peers and with the public.

Students will learn how to:

  • Apply basic design principles to create a proper visual abstract
  • Use visual thinking to give structure and hierarchy to the data and information you want to present
  • Explore the different tools and strategies to create and use visual summaries
