A poster is a good opportunity to present your evaluation findings, your organization, and to get useful feedback. A good poster communicates your message clearly, quickly and succinctly. It is able to capture attention, stimulate discussion, and gives you the opportunity to distribute more detailed information in a brochure or other item.
An effective poster operates on many levels: it is a source of information, a means of starting a discussion, a support to a presentation, and should also be able to stand alone when you're not there to provide an explanation.
