National Research Conference for Careers Practitioners 2023:
Invitation to present a research poster

The poster session at this conference is a space for dialogue: for practitioner researchers to present a summary of their work, and for conference delegates to gain an overview of the variety of current or recent research projects.

Career practitioners and students engaged in research of any type are invited to present a poster at this conference. There are many benefits in doing this:

•    Tell people about your research
•    Gain interest and feedback
•    Engage in useful discussion and maybe collaboration
•    Share your findings and prepare for wider dissemination

You can be at any stage of the research process, so your poster might cover anything from early plans for the methodology or literature review, right through to findings and analysis of a near-complete research project. The aim is to inform and inspire other potential practitioner researchers.

The conference team offers a guide to preparing your poster and will provide a training session on using the digital platform for this conference. We will also invite you to create a short three minute video talking about your poster which will available on the Hopin conference platform (though this will not be a requirement).

Your video, if using one, will also be available throughout the conference for attendees to view.
