EXPO 2019/20 - Information for Poster Presenters


As for the Posters, we will collect the poster image/pdf as well as a 3-minute (max) video from each presenter to make a poster archive on the Expo website. In the poster sessions during virtual Expo, the poster presenters will be grouped and assigned to bigger virtual rooms in which they will meet each other as well as the participants for in-depth sharing and interactions. Participants are suggested to view the poster images and the videos before attending the poster sessions. 


Each poster presenter will: 


  • Submit a poster design in 90 cm width x 140 cm height in PDF format.

  • Submit a video description with up to 3 minutes long. 

  • Participate in live Q&A and discussion in a poster session

All submitted materials will be made available to the public prior to the event day. 


  1. Designing your posters

    • The size of the digital poster is 90 cm in width and 140 cm in height. 

    • Make sure you have information about the presentation topic, name of the author(s) and affiliation on the poster.

    • Using columns is a good idea. Then the presentation format can be presented in a number of columns, beginning at the left-hand side of the board.

    • A brief introduction, clear explanation of the project/ teaching and learning strategy, and evaluation results (if available) should be clearly displayed on the poster.

    • Focus on a few main points using clear and sufficient graphics.

    • Consider using outlines or dot points for the poster presentation.

    • Use a clear and readable font size.

    • Please confirm the images that you provided are high enough in resolution and do not contain any copyright infringement materials.

    • If your project is funded by a university/ external grant (e.g. UGC, TDLEG, MMCDG, CDG), we suggest acknowledgement of the source of funding (if applicable) should be indicated on the poster.

  2. Poster award

    • An award will be given to the best poster whose poster presentation and/ or demonstration that best addresses the innovative projects/ strategies for teaching and learning. The results will be announced at the event day and/or on the website.

    • Judgment of the posters and/ or demonstration is made by all participants, presenters and a panel of fellow professors of the University. Each participant will be given one vote on the day of the event.

    • Posters will be reviewed and scored based on the following criteria:

      1. Topic/ abstract/ videos – Promotion of innovation strategies that are transferable to multiple contexts). 

      2. Poster content  - Explains the project clearly. If the project is still ongoing and evaluation results are not yet generated, more emphasis can be put on the explanation of objectives and approaches.

      3. Presentation - Clear, concise and coherently sequenced explanations of the innovations. 

      4. Question handling - Responds clearly, and demonstrates understanding of the project in terms of the objectives, method, results, and the relevant knowledge of subject area when answering enquiries.
