BA1001: Time, Truth, and the Human Condition Guide: Academic Poster

JCU Library and The Learning Centre resources to help you with your BA1001 assessment tasks

Poster pointers

  • Treat your poster just as you would an essay, just in shorter form. It needs a beginning, middle and end.
  • At the beginning the introduction should let the reader know what the subject is and what your main points will be. The middle should include information providing evidence for your argument or main point.
  • The discussion/conclusion should show how the evidence leads you to your main point or argument.
  • Images or graphics are used to support your points. They should fit the design well - but most importantly they should be relevant.
  • Include APA in-text citations and references.
  • Follow the assessment task instructions in your BA1001 Subject Outline.
