Transcript: POSTGRADUATE CONFERENCE RESEARCH PROJECT ACADEMIC RESEARCH POSTER - GOOD PRACTICE OBJECTIVES # OBJECTIVES How to plan your academic poster Good design practice for academic posters Getting Started SCRIPTING Before you consider any other design software, open Microsoft Word. Any word processor will do, but make sure that it has the ability to track your word count and checks your spelling. TARGET AUDIENCE Ask yourself, who is my ideal audience for this poster? Is it other experts in your field, or perhaps the broader public? What is their level of understanding of the subject? This is an important question because if you put a bit of effort into making your poster understandable to the broader public, you automatically increase your potential audience and impact. BULLET POINTS A poster should not look like a paper, therefore, bullet points are your friend. 200-word paragraphs on a poster would discourage even the most motivated, sober, and caffeinated conference attendant. Bullet points on the other hand are a lot less frightening. There is a trend among some academics to slap a solid 200-or-so word abstract right at the top of their posters. Your whole poster is a VISUAL abstract SECTIONS Use sections with headers. Because we are writing with the reader in mind, we want to make the logical flow of the sections as easy as possible for the viewer to follow. My advice is to have large LESS WORDS Less words. The harsh reality is that if your poster is wordy, people will ignore it. Less is definitely more. GRAPHS You need to leave most of them out. You need to carefully select only the very essentials. One or two graphs is better than three or four, and certainly better than eight or nine! STEP 2: CONCEPT Here is where the fun starts. Grab a piece of paper, or open up your design software, and make a first draft. THINK ABOUT A VISUAL CONCEPT PANELS How do we read, left to right or right to left? Top-down or bottom-up? It may seem obvious, but I always see posters that are visually confusing and don’t have a clear directional flow. Start with an enlarged and readable title right at the top, then create a simple layout of panels that make it easy for the viewer to navigate. Remember that we’re committed to keep the reader in mind, so use arrows and numbered headers to help them out. LEAVE SPACES AT THE EDGES Notice the grey space in the images? It’s important to leave some blank space around the edges for a couple of reasons. First, you don’t want to risk important information to be cut off when printing, and second, you don’t want your poster to feel cluttered. This blank space is also known as negative space, and we’re going to unpack this concept more in the next section. STEP 3: DESIGN STEP 3: DESIGN NEGATIVE SPACE Negative space. For some strange reason, many academics feel the need to cover every inch of their poster with text or images. This is the wrong idea! It’s bad because it makes it difficult for the viewer to find the relevant information and to rest their eye. Clear space, also known as negative space, is an super important design concept, one that you should use to your advantage. 40% of your poster should be clear. EYE-CATCHING VISUALS Imagine you’re walking around a poster session, and you’re far enough away from the posters that you can’t read titles or graphs. What will compel you to walk towards a particular poster? It’ll likely be a recognisable image that grabs your attention. Without a big and recognisable image, your poster will look like a fuzzy wall of text and it will likely go unnoticed. Therefore, it’s smart to include one big visual that’s related to your research and has the ability to hook people in from a distance. Be it a rocket, a lion, or an octopus — what matters is that it’s there. COLOUR COLOUR Use a limited number of colours, say three-to-five, and stick with them! Graphs included. My suggestion is that you have two or three shades of a primary colour of your choice, an accent colour that stands out, and a couple of text colours. In a colour scheme of this kind, you can use the accent colour to draw attention to where you want people to look. The important thing is that you use the accent colour in moderation. Let me show you what I mean. COLOUR BACKGROUND IMAGES? FONTS Fonts and font sizes work a bit like colours. That is, the fewer you use, the better. My suggestion is to use only one or two different fonts. Boldface should be used on titles and headlines, while all the rest should be normal. When picking what fonts to use, play it safe. Stick with the classic Arial, Myriad Pro, and other familiar fonts and you can’t go wrong. SOFTWARE Canva (Free online graphics tool) Microsoft PowerPoint Adobe InDesign?

Movie Poster Powerpoint

Transcript: Texture Form The color in this poster (also refered to as hue) is very well shown, and you can see what I mean when you look at the different lights in the picture and the colors of the titles. This is very important because it gives a whole different feel of the picture itself. The movie poster shows some balance. It shows it from how the car and the writing is specifically placed on the poster. 8 Elements of Design The eight principles of design will include; line, form, space, shape, texture, color, value, and tone. Form is shown in all the places where there is also some objects and where/how they are arranged. The three principles of Design will be explained to you in this order; balance, proportion, and unity. Description The value is also a thing that is shown very well, because you can see the degree of shadowing and different color brightnesses all around the poster. It is about many cars that compete against each other, and fight for a grand prize. I would say that proportion is shown in the way the car fills up the poster and stays strong. To me, the way that Lamborghini is placed gives me a good feeling about the car and how it would feel like to be in it. So, you can see all the textures on it and around the poster. For example the letters. In conclusion, all the objects and shapes are well fitted together, and placed to stay there peacefully. The Races Begin; Movie Poster Analysis By: Aleksandar Bogdanovic I guess that you could say that space is well used in this poster because in the areas where you see the writing meet with the car itself it looks kind of neat because the space is well used. The recommended rating would be around PG-14. Shape Space The line, that is shown in this movie poster is mostly where the car is touching the ground, but there is also some line used in, where the title and subheadings are. The way you can see this element is where and how the shapes are, and how they are placed there. You can see all the shapes is that Lamborghini and around it as well. 3 Principles of Design This element of design is kind of similar to Value, because it also is about the lightness and darkness in a picture. This one pertains to the lightness and darkness in all the ways you see lighter and darker things mostly in the upper section of this poster. Line Proportion Tone Color Value This movie is similar to the Fast and the Furious movie series; as a result, the genre would be considered to be a drama-action film. Unity Balance

Transcript: A dolls house context CONTEXT: ‘A Doll’s House’, written by the Norwegian author Henrik Ibsen, was first performed in 1879, having been written in the same year. The play was first performed in Denmark, more specifically in Copenhagen. Audiences were taken aback due to the then controversial portrayal of his flawed heroine, Nora. To this day, it remains one of the most striking dramatic depictions of the typical nineteenth century woman, who were expected to be the inferior half of the relationship. In 1964, the play was translated in English by Michael Meyer, as well as being performed in the same year. Shocked it's first audiences with its themes of self-liberation vs duty, where women were expected to be the inferior half of the relationship. Cemented his legacy as 'The father of twentieth-century European drama.' (Wells, 2002) Henrik Ibsen, writer of the play concept concept Our idea for our production of ‘A Doll’s House’ is that it will be set in the modern-day, as the play still relevant to modern society, with feminism being on the rise. The play will performed at National Theatre, as it is a major theatre. Looking into these past productions of A dolls house. we were heavily inspired to put a modern twist on it. especially looking at the short modern film based on Nora. After looking into it. We wanted to expand on that. venue venue National Theatre - Olivier Theatre As discussed previously, the venue of our choice is the National Theatre. The reason we chose this venue is because it is one of, if not the, biggest theatres in the UK. This is the seating plan for the audience in the Olivier Theatre. Olivier Theatre (Layout) casting casting As we are setting this version of A Dolls House in the 21st Century, we will cast well known actors. Torvald Helmer - Ralph Fiennes Nora - Sheridan Smith Doctor Rank - Joel Fry Mrs Linde - Sandra Oh Nils Krogstad - Richard Madden Helmers three young children- Anne (The nurse)- Nathalie Emmanuel a housemaid- Rose McGowan a porter- Connor Swindells costume costume As we want to make this somewhat, dated set piece, modernized, the costumes have to be accustomed to it. Taking Nora as a key example. In a previous adaptation, Nora could be seen wearing denim and a hoodie, which were designed by Jessica Ford. So we, could have Nora in jeans as it's something that "breaks the norm" and is seen as un-ladylike. Nora's clothing should stay fixed for the majority of the play Her final entrance look, however should be in street clothes so it really shows how firm her decision to leave is. Torvald, the husband could get away just wearing a suit because even to this day any high end job attire is normally a suit and tie with a crisp white shirt. Krogstad and Mrs Linde, have to put comfort before style in regards to costume to show how harsh their lifestyle is in comparison to their counterparts. Krogstad can have his bulky coat and furs to give him a menacing appearance, though they are perfectly suited to the weather. lighting lighting Victorian theatres often used simple gas lighting for the performances. Modern-day lighting will be used - fresnels and par cans. Lighting could change for different moments of the play, i.e. the confrontation between Torvald and Nora in Act 3. sound sound No sounds are really needed for this play. Manual sounds could be used - Door slamming for Act Three (When Nora walks out) Modern sounds are more technologically advanced then when it was first performed. We want this to feel naturalistic and true to the play, which is why, music will only be implemented when it's needed. Some slight SFX for when tensions are rising would be usefil; set/props set/props design The doll's house was a 19th set drama piece which used many theatricals techniques that involved theater. Here is a list of all the props used for a doll's house from Act 1 to 3: Act I: Cabinet with Chine and other small objects Book-case with well-bound books Christmas Tree Basket Noras Purse Noras packet of macaroons Varied amounts of money Noras Christmas gifts New suit for Ivar Sword, horse, and trumpet for Bob Doll and dollys bedstead for Emmy Dress-lengths and handkerchiefs for the maids.

Transcript: ~Thank You~ 6) What skills (for example, leadership, communicative, analytical) do you possess? Interests: My interests have to do a lot with art, math, science, and the universe. I always had a passion to understand everything that is around me. For example the earths geography, stars, the sun, planets, and chemical reactions. Motivation(s): I always had the motivation to make my family proud and be successful and I know my parents want that for me too. Another motivation is failure. Failure always motivates me to do better. High School When growing up, I guess you could say I didn't have family problems, they just have a history of motivating me and by brothers. They like to teach us new things everyday because all they want is for us to have the futures that they never reached. This influence helped me make me who I am...someone is will make my family smile and be proud whenever they see me.

Entertainment/Pocket Funds I believe when I was young; at six or seven years of age, I would learn slower than the other students in my class. I sort of got frustrated that I was never the smart one...even though I tried SUPER hard, so that motivated me like seven years later, to prove that I didn't need help with learning. I guess it helped. :/ Ever since I was born I always had this passion where I loved to learn about life and how things worked. Every time I would go to a science fair or educational presentation, I would always have great interest. I don't know if everyone else is like this but I guess you can classify it as special or unique.

Transcript: Multilingual and multimodal literacy beyond school: A case study of an adult vlogger in china Zulfa Amalia Safitri A 2018 | 1805085016 Introduction Introduction Background of the study Background of the study Sign-makers must be aware of modal affordances and integrate "a multitude of signs in different modes into a particular configuration to form a coherent arrangement" in order to coordinate and orchestrate multimodal resources (Kress, 2010, p. 162). Vlogs, as a relatively recent genre, have gained a lot of attention from both the public and academics. Vlogs are described as "short-duration user-generated videos that are distributed digitally for others to watch, subscribe to, or comment on" (Snelson, 2015, p. 322). Therefore, the goal of this study is to learn how the focal participant, an adult EFL speaker in mainland China, participates in bilingual vlogging, and whether the lack of linguistic capital and communicative inspiration in the immediate context, as assumed in the literature, works against the unusual (Leki, 2001; Reichelt et al., 2012). This case study attempts to provide a detailed and situated description of this particular literacy practice by analyzing the participant's experience of vlogging and her published vlogs. Purpose Purpose This research aims to reveal how the participant mobilizes and orchestrates design elements, as well as the factors that influence her decision-making. Research problem Research problem 1. How are diverse design elements mobilized and orchestrated in the vlogs? 2. What informs and influences the participant’s decision making in the designing process? Methodology Methodology Subject and sampling method Findings The focal participant of this study is Chloe (pseudonym. For sampling method, the researcher use accidental sampling method. Research method Data analysis method Qualitative study case method Interview transcript (for interview data). Multimodal analysis (for published vlogs). In orchestrating design elements in vlogs, the focal participant does not limited to a specific style of vlogging and that she uses a variety of linguistic, visual, and auditory cues to construct meanings and to interact with the audience. While the influences of the participant's decision making in the designing process are divided into four categories of factors that might influence her decision makings in vlog production. Conclusion Conslusion Conclusion This study examined at the voluntary vlogging activities of a Chinese EFL speaker. This study has implications for English literacy pedagogy in an EFL environment by looking at what the participant would do by self-directed activities. According to the results, a lack of communication with the target language population does not always reflect a lack of resources to participate in literacy activities. References References Ta, X.
